I see you!


I found this colorful man hanging out in the gardens of Schloss Charlottenburg. I don't know what kind of water fowl he is, but maybe some of my expert readers can help out with his identification? He was really shaking his tail feathers for me, I probably would too if I had such beautiful plumage.

ETA: Thanks to TexWisGirl and Linda for identifying this fellow as a Mandarin duck.
