Mandarin Duck

Mandarin Duck in Berlin Spandau

The mandarin duck is a particularly beautiful duck that originally came from East Asia. Due to its splendor of colors, it was kept as a pet in Europe, but was then also able to spread into the wild.

These photos were taken in Berlin Spandau. Despite their familiarity with humans, the animals are more shy than mallards and must therefore be photographed with a telephoto lens.

 

I used the Pentax K1 II and the Pentax 300mm F4.
