Took a walk down by the river yesterday and was lucky enough to happen upon some ducks.  To spite the frigid temperatures they appeared to be enjoying life. 

 I was  happy to take a couple of photos and get back into my warm car.  I bet they wished they could do the same,

 well… the warm car part anyway.

  1. I would choose to make snow angels, but these days I wouldn’t be able to get up from the ground, so I think today it is going to be a little bit of shoveling instead.
    Love your ducks, but I doubt if they would appreciate being in a car, warm or not. LOL

  2. Pretty! Love your touch of adding the ‘duck photographer’! It looks mighty cold up there:-) It is pretty frigid here, as well…was 17 this morning. But no snow yet. I’m hoping maybe we’ll get a little this coming week!

  3. Great shots, I would rather be in the warm car.

  4. wow. love the ducks in flight. magnificent…

  5. I so enjoy all your photos! The ducks and the hawk are amazing! The blooming plants do give me hope but I haven’t seen green for a couple months. Jean

  6. What great photos — I always like ducks. We have a whole group of them at our neighborhood pond but I can never get good photos like this :-)

  7. Thanks for your visit to my blog. These shots are beautiful. The colors of the birds are so interesting and the composition lovely. You were definitely in the right spot at the right moment that time. Hope you all warm up soon though the forecast for this coming week is not the greatest. Sounds like it just might miss us here in VA.

  8. I hope so Genie. this cold weather i wouldn’t wish on anyone
