I think I am in eclipse too, but unlike the ducks my plumage is done for!
A beautiful bird, whatever the stage it is in.Thank you.
I think so EC.
Hi Bob,I have never seen een Mandarin duck in eclipse! Great serie of photos!Regards,Maria
Oh, my God, the plumage transition is difficult, poor thing! Thank you for this great documentary Bob, on the plumage of a beautiful duck.
I saw mandarin ducks are swimming in previous photos, now, they are walking on the land, but look smaller ……Thank you for sharing video
Just beautiful captures of the duck.They are indeed one of the prettiest of the ducks with their colours.
I'm used to seeing various ducks "in eclipse", but there is something heartbreaking about seeing this one. He almost looks sad. I hope all is well with you, by the way.
Hi Bob.Beautiful photos of this beautiful Duck.Greeting from Patricia.
Hello, amazing photos of the Mandarin Duck. Well done! Wishing you a happy day and a great new week!
Qué diferente se ve cuando está cambiando el plumaje.Un abrazo,
Hi. I love that duck. It would be nice to see again.
I had to smile, Bob - that drake Mandarin doesn't look nearly so magnificent in its untidy eclipse plumage. Great images, though! My best wishes - - - Richard
Ha ha ha, it is so sad looking, thanks Richard.
Bob - love them all, but I think you saved the best for last! The detail in the feathers is truly exquisite.
