Taken yesterday, Not the first one I have photographed at my pond in Portland, Oregon.
Not sure how they got here, and supposedly they cannot interbreed with the local Wood ducks, but this is a female Mandarin Duck.

Sweet shot of this rarity, Dan. All of the techs appear spot-on; and the pose, light and background are excellent.
