Mandarin Duck female ( Aix galericulata)

The female of this species is quite outstanding, not says the RSPB "The female is dull by comparison". Ha ha, who are trying to kid. It is BEAUTIFUL. This is for Peter Photos taken in the Forest of Dean. You can get them easily at the Stone Works, it is easier if you can go by car and shoot while inside.

  7. Bob, she's like the female Wood Duck: not as much colour as the males, but excitingly beautiful none the less! Far from drab!
    Well captured, by the way!

  8. Hay un gran dimorfismo sexual, pero juntos forman una bella pareja.
    Un abrazo,

    There is a large sexual dimorphism, but together they form a beautiful couple.
    A hug,

  9. Lieber Bob, es ist oft so, dass in der Tierwelt die Weibchen unscheinbarer sind.
    Aber ich finde die Farbgebung dennoch sehr schön.
    Ein frohes Osterfest wünscht
