Photo Submission

I saw on the news that a Mandarin Duck had been spotted on a little lake in Cincinnati, so I grabbed my camera and headed out there! It’s always fun to photograph a bird you’ve never seen before. He is part of a group of mallard ducks and even had a mallard girlfriend that he’s really possessive of. It was interesting watching his antics whenever another duck would come close to her. I like this photo the best of the ones I took because he has his head raised and you can see all of his colors.
