burlington bay

The ducks and geese have a sleep on the icy waters while traffic speeds across the Burlington Skyway.

it is hard to imagine that it is a very cosy spot for sleeping!

Makes me wonder why the geese and ducks don't fly south. :) I'm trying to figure out where you must have been standing when you took this photo.

I'm absolutely convinced birds have a sort of hive mind. In a split second, can you imagine all these birds lifting off all at once? What a spectacular sight that would be.

KaHolly said...

Wow, look at them all. This IS probably south for them!

«Louis» is always amazed at how waterfowl survive the cold. It obviously isn't summer in this image!

A welcome contribution to Sunday Bridges.

How can these fowl keep from freezing? Maybe it i oil in their feathers. They are amazing birds and this shot is amazing. How you managed to be at the right spot at the right time was a stroke of luck. Beautiful presentation.

Great shot!

Ann said...

What time did you got and take these photos? Are they very cold and need to conserve their energy?

Evelyn said...

Wow, so many of them dotting the water.

Ann: it was around 4pm and now that you mention it, I'm surprised they weren't huddled closer together.
