  15. Oh these are wonderful, Bob. There has only been one sighting of a Mandarin duck in my local pond and that was pretty much before my photography days. Half of the province was down here with cameras. You've captured some beautiful shots.

  30. The most exquisite photos of Mandarin Ducks I have ever seen Bob. Absolutely gorgeous!

    We had a sighting of a Mandarin here in northern California a couple years ago but I never got to see it. It was undoubtedly an escapee.
