    A pair of Mandarin that were lurking in the poor light of the pond undergrowth:

    Many thanks Holty - the male does have striking colours :)
    Comments much appreciated, John - I agree re female subtle colouration, but I must say the bright colours on the male are rather spectacular :)

    - the male has fantastic feather detail and colour - definitely worth seeking out!

    - I tried to show 2 different types of pose for this pair of Mandarins, to display their best features.
