Richmond: Mandarinling Macro
Closer in large.
*Sigh* "At least there won't be much to photograph in Richmond today..."
When will I learn...?
I narrowed it down to 55 at least.
There was a friendly heron (with Corbyn?), mandarin ducks, and then these mandarin ducklings with their leucistic mother... They were so cute, and I had the macro mounted; they did paddling, peering, posing, preening, Pilates, and piling...
I uploaded a few amusing series, each right from their links:
Jumping down, Matrix-style
Mandarin vs. mallard

The mandarin drakes were looking particularly splendid in the sunshine, whether posing, paddling, barking, unruffled, wind-ruffled, and I liked my heron graffiti shot.
