mandarin duck in full color


found this swimming around on the rye at high wycombe buckinghamshire uk. not native to britain.

food...water plants grain

habitat..forest and likes fast flowing water

eggs...9-12 white and oval

yes this duck is real, no i have not photoshopped it, came out like this, the sun was stronge and the colours just seem to jump out at you.

if anything i think its a bit over exsposed
