Nature Walks – On Frozen Ponds

Today is a beautiful day with clear blue skies. There is only a slight crispness and coolness to the air. But tomorrow … We are supposed to have more snow. I took advantage of the better weather today. So did the ducks and geese.

Our ponds are all in various stages of being frozen over. Some are completely frozen while others are only partially frozen, while others still are frozen only on the ends and are liquid in the middle. Either way, the ducks and geese were having fun.

The tracks. You know they have been here. They have left their marks.

Found … Ducks and geese.

Is this the polar bear swim club?

The geese were mostly our Canadians, but if you look closely, you will also see one lone snow goose hiding.

I’ve got to get away from these crazy boys.

I’m so handsome, she’ll come back to me. I just know it.

BRRRRRR! It’s cold.

My ducks today were mostly Mallards, but I did have a couple of Common Goldeneyes enjoying themselves too.

Stay warm, stay well and stay safe Everyone, but still make sure to always make the best of your days.

  1. 1. What a gorgeous backdrop with the mountains.
    2. I enjoyed reading the dialogue as I browsed through the photos of the mallards.
    3. It’s interesting how the paths are duplicated in certain spots and completely missing in others.
