3/16/09 Photos of The Day


This little guy is amazingly beautiful with color. I took the kids to the Jacksonville Zoo yesterday and when we were in the bird aviary I couldn't keep my eyes off this guy!! Not sure what type of duck this is but I think he is some sort of wood duck.

Wow! That is one incredible looking bird. What markings it has. I've never seen a duck like that! You captured it so gracefully. You've also got some wonderful animal shots on your blog! Wow again!!

I first thought it to be a wood duck, but it is not. I believe this beautiful and beautifully photographed duck to be a Mandarin Duck.
