  10. Nice set of pictures, like the wood duck in particular.
    Here in the UK the Mandarin has established itself in the wild after escaping from collections and there are now said to be more wild Mandarin ducks in the UK than in China (where it comes from). Strangely the same has not happened with the wood duck though there are lots in collections and it is closely related to the Mandarin.
     
  11. Wow Ben I love these shots and a superb subject! I have never seen one!
