Slow shutter speed for this one, right? Those ducks must have been sitting very still :) I've always love Mandarin ducks- they almost look like painted toys.

In Drente zaten ze ook altijd in een vijver in het dorp waar wij vaak gaan kamperen.

Dank je wel. Ja het zijn hele mooie eenden. Ik denk dat
ze een keer uitgezet zijn door iemand die ze niet meer
wilde hebben, want het zijn echte sier eenden. Maar ze
doen het goed, en hebben vorig jaar zelfs jongen gekregen. :)

Ja, het zal zo wel gegaan zijn want ze leven niet in het wild. Gelukkig doen ze het goed. Ze zijn toch wel heel mooi!

Thank you very much, I saw one couple last year for the
first time, but now there are a few more couples in a nearby
pond. So the are doing very well there. I think someone has
released them there. Normally we have only mallards too.

Thank you Walt. I found them in a near by little park were
I regularly go for a walk. Most times the are hiding, but this time
I could approach them pretty close. There are a few pairs there now. :)
