mandarin duck in full color
found this swimming around on the rye at high wycombe buckinghamshire uk. not native to britain.
food...water plants grain
habitat..forest and likes fast flowing water
eggs...9-12 white and oval
yes this duck is real, no i have not photoshopped it, came out like this, the sun was stronge and the colours just seem to jump out at you.
if anything i think its a bit over exsposed
THIS IS MY PHOTO I TOOK IT back in 2005 , I DID NOT GIVE ANYONE ELSE PERMISSION TO USE IT, BUT IT DOES SEEM TO HAVE APEARED ON MANY OTHER PEOPLES PAGES AND WEB SITES ECT. so please dont email me being rude saying i have pinched the image. this truly belongs TO ME Thanks
