A Quack In The Ice

Just couldn't resist a trip to Marbury in the lovely Winter sun today. Despite all the fabulous bird activity, it was the Mallards skating across the ice that really caught my eye. Their colours stood out beautifully against the ice on the lake.





Hope they put a smile on your face too.

  6. Great photos and so funny to see ducks standing on ice. No ice around me - just hot summer weather - and yours is such a contrast.

  14. A frozen lake is completely foreign to me, and the birds look like they're having lots of fun. Lovely shots!! ... Leanne@B&B

  15. I know how they feel! We have no ice here in Florida! When we lived in Germany, I was not nearly as graceful on the slick stuff as your Mallards.

  17. Splendid pictures - ducks on ice are always funny - or as somebody I used to know would say "They make me bad with laughing"

    See ya, pet!

  20. Hi Heather!
    Nice photos of the ducks on ice. The first one I like best.
    I don't think I have taken any photos like yours, but it's sure icy here in Sweden too now, so maybe I can.
    Thanks for your comment! :) /Pia
