Lovely shot of a beautiful mallard! I can't imagine how cold that water is! We used to go to Lake Michigan and it was still cold in June! Kathy

it was very cold when I took this and most of the other ducks were huddled together

James said...

Great shot. When I lived near ducks they would travel in groups of two or three then flock with other groups.

I also really like your skywatch picture.
