I saw this one in the middle of Ottawa... Thousands of commuters passed by without a clue they were there. ( it was a pair of Peregrines). The duck WAS a Mallard....

It was a warm day, got all the way to plus 2.... And it is now snowing, they say another 15 cm....

That's a wonderful shot.
You think he (or she) is standing on one leg because of the cold?
