He’s back! It’s been 2.5 years since I last saw this male Mandarin duck (Aix galericulata), so I was delighted to spot him again yesterday. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • They’re gorgeous, Kevin! A woman that passed by when I was photographing asked me if I put a plastic duck in the canal. Really! Even after I told her it was a real duck she didn’t seem to believe me.
