Beautiful pic Ron, but where is it?

wow gorgeous...

Lovely colour ducks are Mandarins theres lots in China and the Chinese dont eat them like everything else because for some reason they dont taste very nice.

The dusks also build there nest in trees similar to wood ducks

Colin. Taken by the swan pond in Haigh Hall. Strange but never seen a swan on there.


Comment by Cyril on 10th June 2010 at 11:47
Excellent photo Ron, but what was the bird who was trying to get into the shot as it hasn't got webbed feet, you can just see the large feet top of photo.


Comment by David on 10th June 2010 at 13:10
Nice picture. LX3?


Comment by Dustaf on 10th June 2010 at 14:08
Lovely photograph.

I believe the Swan Pond is so named after the Swan Mussels that were in it.

What a great shot of a really beautiful duck. Great colours. It's like opening a birthday card, not knowing what the next good photo is going to be about. Thanks Dot
