The beautiful female Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata) a closeup with her typical white eye-ring and stripe running back from the eye and has a small white flank stripe, and a pale tip to its bill. Visiting a dam (Svandammen) in central Uppsala, Sweden I used a Nikon D3s with a Nikkor 300mm VR f/2,8, ISO 200, 1/250 sec at f/4,0 to capture this image.
