Nature Photo of the Week: Mirror Mirror

There are a lot of beautiful sights in nature — colorful flowers, lush forests, glowing sunsets — but as this duck has learned, sometimes the most beautiful things are right in from of your face! We adore this photograph by Flickr photographer Rich Seeley of this curious Mandarin. Thanks for sharing your photo through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group.
