Thanks! Yeah, they're truly stunning birds and even these captures don't show it off completely.

I've also got this N. American rarity; close cousin of our Wood Ducks:

Mandarin Duck; presumably an escapee/release as our best guess

very nice capture Mike. They are lovely birds. Beautiful markings.

It certainly posed well for you too. But did you keep it waiting too long? Crossed it's legs. Needing a pee? :-P

Two beauties there Eric. Different but uniquely very beautiful. And yes stunning is the Gallinule.
Both very well captured.
