Default Ducks waiting out the storm

All winter, these ducks gather in or by this stream behind my apartment. This was taken today at about 12:20 PM, just as our first major snow storm is quieting down.


Same picture to show more detaili:

I don't know which version I like better. They're both excellent, Joshua.

Joshua,

The pictures of the ducks almost :lol: make me want to visit those cold climates to take pictures of them.

Very nicely done especially the first shot.

Thanks Sjms and Selvin.

I was wearing hiking boots but my feet still got soaked when I walked too close to the edge of the ice to get a shot free from brush and branches. I think I was standing in ice-cold water. :-)
