Can we ban this Gary fellow to give some others half a chance! ;D
Seriously though, another splendid shot, Gary you must either have the patience of a saint or the luck of the Irish. How long do you have to wait for this to happen where you are set up?

Cheers Graham.

WOW, again thanks to all for the great shots.  Don, at least you have someone playing in the white stuff.  I'm still emulating Seridipidy with my CarlTN's "common folk" tricked into posing.

However, I now have a bunch of old blankets sewn into a hanging blind suspended from my deck canopy.  Tripod set up, props nicely placed, book in hand reading while sitting on a lawn chair with electric heater at my feet!! ;D

I was happy to get this pose today.

A Panorama from the great white north...

These ducks hang around all winter and live off of handouts.. you can get VERY close to them, particularly if you have food. This section of river normally stays open here all winter (rapids) but this year it is completely frozen over and a number of ducks have lost their feet to frostbite... plus they have to eat snow to get water. A very rough year on them.

The last day that got up to "seasonal average" was in mid-November.... I have a hard time believing that they stayed.

Don, news yesterday - Great Lakes frozen over - wow.  But it's hot in Australia, wonder what the average is for the planet?

Sad to see the wildlife suffer but it's the way of the wild as it's always been.


Nice to see this thread continue to grow with lots of newcomers. :)
