Fieldston Pond frozen...


This poor duck, I have to mention here,
Had no girlfriend for the past two years…
When the weather was brutally cold,
He was protecting
This shrinking waterhole
From freezing…
All alone….

When I was a teenage hunter, I saw a mallard that I realized had become frozen in thin ice about a half-mile out into a lake. Your photographs made me think of that time. I did not want to comment about this, but decided to so you would know I was not ignoring you.

It is always sad to see an animal dying at the hands of Nature or a man...
