Mallard



Camera Critters


I shot at this mallard...
I mean with my camera. Isn't it looking beautiful?

Ducks have no blood vessels or nerves in their feet, so they can't feel cold even in frigid water. Interesting, huh?

I never knew that about ducks! I've always wondered how they were able to swim a lot in the winter. Now I know - thanks! :D

Hi! Yes that is interesting about their feet. I have often wondered if their feet even got cold.

This is a beautiful picture.
