STOPS ALONG THE WAY

HARDY DUCK (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Mallard in Snow

It’s been a long cold winter. The snow drifts are high beside the river. Mallards congregate here because this portion of the river is fast moving and doesn’t freeze. As we approached the river’s edge we fell in behind a man carrying a huge sack of cracked corn for the ducks. We stood back as the ducks mobbed the man. As we were leaving I saw this mallard a ways from the crowd and took this shot.

  1. I hope this one got some feed too. They are hardy and it amazes me that they stay and don’t fly south.

  4. Great photo! The winter has been miserably mild by me, so it’s great to see a little snow in this picture.
