  6. The drake is surely one of the most spectacular of ducks, Bob, but the female has a delightful serene beauty. Great images of these wonderful birds. Happy Easter and best wishes - - - Richard

  8. Hi Bob,
    Wonderful images of the Mandarin, the Male {who appears to be bored with everything} is such a beautiful bird, also the female but alongside the male she looks dowdy.
    Wonderful set of images.
    All the best, John
