    I'm blown away, and inspired, too. Wonderful shots. That first one amazes me...the richness, sharpness...well done.

    Joe, I am green with envy that you have Mandarin Ducks! Them, the Harloquin and the Wood duck are my favorite 3 ducks! Beautiful! I also like the limpkin. The rest are nice {bit soft on the Cardinal} but the Mandarin and Limpkin take top honors of the series.

    Hello Nat, thank you for viewing and commenting. The light for the first one was wonderful, it was late afternoon and the ducks turned just right to catch it.

    Hi Paul, where I live has many lakes. The parks department bought two pairs of Mandarin Ducks and released them into a lake in the center of the city. They will compliment the three different species of swans. The Cardinal softened when reducing the noise, I used a different method and reposted it above.

    Wonderful Joe (again), I am captivated by the Herons, mum and young with the nest and full plumage. Exceptional shot.
