Beauty and the beast

A big thank you to my neighbor who called to tell me this beautiful little duck was in the water behind our home.  I am not sure what type it is, but the colors were just beautiful.  Earlier, my husband brought me a frog to photograph that he found while raking leaves.  What is it with guys and frogs?  But, it did make a great contrast to the beautiful little duck!  (Update:  This is a Mandarin Duck that is native to places like Russian and China.  This one probably escaped someone's collection or a zoo.  Hope we continue to see it!)

First the Beauty

Then the Beast
