Thanks Steve! I used to think these are the most beautiful birds, until I saw the Mandarin!

Love the 3rd shot. Awesome capture! Very beautiful birds indeed, and adorable as babies as well. Hope to get some shots of them this year.

What a beautiful bird. Looks like his face was painted by a pro makeup artist! Love the detail in the feathers in #1.

Beautiful birds, beautifully photographed!

How close were you to these birds? Ours are much too shy for this (impatient) photographer...
