Wow! Thanks guys! Glad you liked them.

The latin word of the bird is Aix galericulata.I´m not sure about the english name for it. It´s a bird from eastern asia. Really cool and not to usual in Sweden.

Best regards/Daniel

Stunning shots Daniel. The duck is called a Mandarin duck. In the United States we have something similar called a Wood Duck, which maybe you have, too. Wish my photos of the Wood Ducks were 1/10th as nice as your Mandarin shots are.

Daniel.

#4 is stunning shot of a Mandarin, which as laurel mentioned is close relative the wood duck we have here in the US which is quite pretty as well. i also liked all of the first 4 really, some nice shots.
