There was just this one Mandarin Duck that I was able to shoot in this local pond recently. Shooting this duck is not easy as they tend to stay as far away from you as possible. A couple of years ago in another pond there were as many as a dozen Mandarin Ducks (#10) - the only time I have ever seen this many, as usually you will find just a couple of them, or none at all.

Thank you, Lil! We recently spotted one at the LA Arboretum too, but only for that one time. Been back there a few times now and I have not seen it again. Probably flew off to the next pond - water is cleaner on the other side of the fence!

Great shots of the most beautiful domestic duck.

If anyone really ones to get close to one of these ducks, you can order them online:

Seems you can even order a dead frozen one and have a taxidermist do his thing with it.

Thank you, Tony! Mandarin ducks are not native to North America. They are native to North Asia - China, Japan, Korea, and eastern Russia. Iíve heard that some parks would buy a pair of these ducks for their ponds to draw more people to their parks, but I donít know if this is true. The problem is if the food is not there they are not going to hang around in that pond for very long.

You did well capturing the most colorful duck there is, Bobby! Only a single one there right now, huh? My picks would be #1, #7 through #9.

Gorgeous photos Bobby. Even a wood duck as if the one stunning duck is not enough
