Duck, Duck, Goose, in the Snow

January 19, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

My husband and I were out for the day shopping, and left the mall right around dusk.  It had just started snowing, and we drove past a local duck pond.  I saw the pond was starting to freeze, and some geese were out on the ice.   I said, "Please stop and let me take pictures."    I felt kind of bad, because I had no snacks for the ducks and geese, and they clearly wanted some.   It's really amazing that their feathers make it so the ice cold water does not seem to bother them.   I can personally attest that when water is 23 degrees Fahrenheit it hurts.  It not only hurts, but if you are crazy enough to go under, it takes all the breathe from your body.   Go little winter ducks!!  I hope you keep each other warm in the upcoming single digit and below zero weather.  You can find a few more shots of these guys in my Wildlife album, here.
