As the sun set over "my" icy pond tonight,
I walked along the edge for a few minutes.
Didn't last very long...
in case you haven't heard...
it's really cold out side!
In some spots the water is frozen solid in the middle,
and in others all the dramatic ice formations are around the edges.
The craziest thing is that you can still hear the water moving under the surface
when you're standing close to the pond.
It really freaks me out!
Moving a little further, my eyes sought out the source of the cacophonous quacking I heard.
With just a narrow "lane" of unfrozen water by the shore,
all the ducks crowded together like a swarm ~
and boy were they making noise!
Something must have spooked them, because they all started swimming in my direction
and then climbed up out of the water.
It was very funny to see one lone swan in the middle of it all.
I couldn't tell if he was in charge
or just totally out of place!
It probably goes without saying,
but we are deep in the heart of winter in my neck of the woods!
