Mandarin Duck

Irvine Regional Park

I was looking into taking images of these ducks for quite sometime. They were reported to be present at certain regional parks in Southern California but I never saw any until now. These very colorful and beautiful ducks are very skittish and unless in captivity, you have to use the longest lens in your arsenal to capture decent images.

Canon EOS 7D ,Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM
1/100s f/5.6 at 800.0mm iso100 full exif
