Added this colorful beauty to my favorites to Kathy. I love the sleeping pose but its those colors and details that make this a must have. What a beauty, a winner my friend.

Congrats on this marvelous Gold Winner and POTD! I agree!: the Mandarin drake is the most colorful and beautiful of the waterfowl (and I think male Wood Ducks come next) :-) CONGRATS again!
