Not the Mandarin Tony Stark was Expecting

As the weather has improved a bit I have started taking regular walks in Epping Forest with my trusty Nikon again. On Monday I spied a few Mandarin Ducks on two of the ponds but they were being very coy and all the photos were rubbish. Today was a different story, there were loads of them and it wasn’t long before this little chap was bearing down on me.

  1. I’m not much of a bird person, but these mandarins are beautiful! Such intricate, colorful designs. They almost don’t look real. I think I’d wander to the park every day to see them if we had them around here. Great pictures!
