Winter Pond

I stopped at a small pond today to get some photos of the ducks and geese that, incredibly, were swimming in the icy water. As you can see, we still have quite a bit of snow on the ground and the pond was covered with ice in parts. The ducks and geese seemed to be enjoying the water.

The geese are always in pairs. They knew I was there but totally unconcerned. I'm sure they're used to people since there's a jogging path next to the pond. It's really a beautiful little area that has a small fountain.

There lots of ducks, mostly mallards, except for this gorgeous little white duck. She's there all the time. Last year, she and one of the male mallards were paired off and waddling around the houses under the brush.

And lastly, the beautiful shape of a sleeping tree, resting and gathering its strength to bloom in the coming spring. I love winter.
