    ANOTHER pic of Mandarin ducks.. Or so I thought.

    Upon closer inspection I discover that it is in fact a couple of male Wood Ducks..

    The poor ugly female has her head under the water. Wouldn't be caught dead in a pic with these pretty boys.

    Ah, but there is more. It just so happens that the Wood Duck shares it's genes with..... Yes, you guessed it, the MANDARIN DUCK! :D

  5. The poor ugly female has her head under the water.

    And you can be certain of two things:

    The boy with the surprised grin and wide eyes didn't think it was quite that long and that she could still quack with her beak full under water.

  6. Bertie - yeah, oddly, Kath was preoccupied with more intellectual matters.

    Ha ha ha.. Good one Mike..

    You too, Caz.. Yes, you know me too well.....Unusual for me to be preoccupied with intellectual matters when such a pic presents with carnal possibilities..

    Sheesh, must be getting.. old... or too much. :D

  8. I handed this one to you Kath, on the proverbial silver platter ... I still feel so let down.
