- Chinese Mandarin Duck -

Today I drove 60 km just to take a picture of this duck. It does normally not live in the wild in Denmark, but this one seems to be getting on pretty well. It has settled down in a small pond (at Brundlund Castle) and has actually found a girlfriend (from another breed though) Posted by Picasa

Lucky you. We don't have that kind or duck in Canada. First time I see one...

Love that kind of love stories. If I were a lady duck, I sure fall in love with that beauty.

I always find it how half the fun, sometimes, is just hearing the taking/prep of the shot. Great capture, keep 'em comming!

This is an example of "you wouldn't believe it unless you saw it!" Well worth all the 60 km.

Hey! I once saw a duck like that in Canada. In a narrow secluded harbour just outside Victoria on Vancouver Island.

This is a wonderful photo, I just love it (and the story).
