Mandarins by wordpixman

Mandarins

It was nice to see a pair of beautiful Mandarin ducks bringing colour to the park pond in miserable weather and I could not resist taking a photograph of them.

But I have to admit that I cheated and took the same duck twice because the other one refused to pose for me!

(But you won't tell anybody, will you?)
Wow beautiful ducks love their colours a fav
