Nature's Palette

Truly one of the most beautiful birds in the world, the exquisite Mandarin duck is a native of eastern Russia, China and Japan but frequently migrates thru southern California.   

Unfortunately, most of us in the rest of the continental United States will never get to experience the splendor of these colorful creatures up close but we can enjoy photos, thanks to the artistry of our chief photographer.  Chandel recently captured a pair of travelers as they visited  Lindo Lake and was kind enough to share them with us. Enjoy!
