Ducks fly in for bread
It was about 10 degrees the day I took these pictures, with the windchill closer to 10 below.

    It always amazes me how the ducks and geese will leisurely paddle around in near freezing water. I wonder how their feet don’t freeze. In this cold keep the other feet featured toasty!

  12. Great shot of the ducks; too bad they tend to leave stuff from their behind behind.
    Very cute feet!

    Tiffany – thank you.
    Solomon – When I started scattering bits of bread the ducks flew in from the ‘pond’ so fast I was afraid they’d mob me. They didn’t. They are very well-behaved.
    Jientje – thank you. I like the feet, too. It was just a quick thought I had one day, but I liked the result.
    Secret Agent Mama – thank you.
    HRH, Christine, Tasina, Annie, Julie – I love that pond, too. I just can’t seem to stop taking pictures of it. There is another open area just a bit upstream. I think it must be that a warm spring comes up there – otherwise I don’t understand why it’s not frozen over like the rest of the river.
    Rhonda – I’ll be sure to visit you.
    Anglophile, Karen, Jenty, Maggie – I don’t know why they don’t fly south. Maybe this IS south for these particular ducks. We have ducks and geese on the river there year ’round. I think what they leave behind helps to keep the grass green.
    storyteller – rest assured no one goes out without shoes!
    Suzanne – I’m sorry to hear you’ve been suffering the cold, too. I can’t remember a time I’ve been more anxious for warm weather!!!!
