In traditional Chinese wedding ornaments, figures of Mandarin Ducks are often used to symbolize long-lasting love and marriage. In Taiwan, the ducks mostly live in the deep mountain creek and lake areas, in the middle elevation. They are protected by law, but their quantity is still low. This male was photographed inside the Fushan Botanical Garden in I-Lan County, Taiwan.
