-5 Ducks

By BarbaraR
Another to add to my canal set.
I took this in February after a night
of -5 C temps. They looked so cold on
their one legs and tucked up.
I was pleased with the five formation.
Hope it works, especially at thumbnail ..
Cheers for the c&c's previously folks.

Great capture, they must have been unhappy with the ice and frost.

Love the way they hide their heads. I think I'd have done the same...
Two of them are hidden anyway - lol

Wonderful image, you caught them early all still tucked up asleep, were they frozen to the spot ?
Super photo.

Many thanks Lucy, Nicky, everyone.
Pleased to say they all thawed out just fine,
swans and ducks, (coots, moorhens too)
They'll be raising their broods now .

Cheers, B x

The must be so chilly - no wonder they have their own 'down' duvets underneath I think they need it. Great image.

Good composition: certainly captures the icy mood. and the fact that ducks cope. Like the tones too.
