I don't think I would have seen that one. Good shot.

George said...

He looks as if he's stepping somewhat gingerly. But it is a wonderful picture.

Farmchick said...

Such a great capture of them on the ice.

Jacob said...

Someone looked at me once and said, "Jesus Christ!"

Wow! I thought that was pretty cool, so I went down to the lake and tried to walk on water. Didn't work! Maybe if I had waited until it froze.

Then again, maybe I ain't J.C. You think?

Cute shot!

And re your comment on Stone Creek: As I recall, it was the beginning of a perfect day and I took that photo from the golf course.

Which reminds me that yesterday I played golf with Les and Jackie. Les and Jackie live in Ontario in a town about an hours drive west of Toronto. They are kinda old. Like me. They were very nice. Unlike me. But we got along great and had a fun time. They didn't know where East Gwillimbury was. That was disappointing! They come down here every winter for three months.

One duck is tiptoeing and dancing ballet!

Rose said...

Nice capture....wonder if they ever slip on the ice>

Inger-M said...

You would think their feet get cold, but it doesn't seem to bother them. Nice reflections!
Have a great weekend :-)

That duck is certainly strutting - and the reflection makes me smile!

If it walks like a duck, its reflection is a duck, too.

VP said...

They look surprised to be on dry land...

Greyscale Territory said...

Love how some feathers of the mallard are upfright suggesting that the little one is treading gingerly on thin ice! And a great reflection!

Birdman said...

Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch!

Bill said...

Walking on water? I knew ducks were close to God!
