guess that is why ducks have all that fat.

At the risk of anthropomorphizing the ducks, they look as though they might be freezing. I'd be.
Looks freezing cold to me, they seem stronger than I because they can stand the cold. :P
We always used to feed the ducks in Amsterdam in the winter - and provide warm water for them to drink!
Bonza photos, i especially like the duck in the 3rd photo and his yellow beak and orange feet which really stand out against the ice :-).
Yes it's amazing how their feet can brave that cold. Maybe their feet's skin has already acclimatized with their climate and already very thick unlike our ducks here both in Malaysia and the Philippines.
they virtually stand on water! gorgeous shots!
I think about penguin feet sometimes at night when it's cold and get up and walk barefoot on the cold floor and curl up my toes to have the least contact, how penguins do the same. These little guys are standing flat footed on the ice, I wonder if their webbed feet go numb.
Very nice photos, nice structure. I like especially the second one.
The poor ducks, I am sure that they don't like to be on the ice. Good photos.
Why the mallards have a built-in heater in their web feet? Grrrrrrr..ma feet frozen already hahaha. Nice pix of the broken pieces of ice.
Great shots! I hope they are warm, I am getting a chill for them.
Amazing strength, those ducks! Makes me cold just looking at them though.
Cool photos. I like the way the sky is reflected in the ice--kind of a broken mirror effect--but the ducks are really neat, too.
I loved the title. The photos also didn't disappoint! Very nice.
Loved these photos, really good.
ouff ! I thought it was now !! pour things ! Very nice pictures !
Incredible detailing on the icy surface. Great job.
Water is the best of all things.here's mine:http://prettystepdaughters.blogspot.com/2011/10/mikahs-day-out.html
I love the reflections in some of the photos. Brrrrr though!
These are neat pictures. I've seen ducks on ice here during the winter, but our winters are much shorter than those in Moscow.
Their webbed feet must have insulated them from the cold. :D
They do seem to be managing quite well on the frozen water. They are hardy ducks!
Whoa! Cool shots (literally too :P). I love the way the ice looks.
some one please send some rubber gum boots from Malaysia to Moscow.
Looks so cold but the birds are cute. Hope they will eat many food.
Oh I didnt know they are called mallards : )
Ducks don't feel the cold like we do.Great pics!
They are hardy little birds, and used to cold water and ice. I like your header photo of the tea plantation.
Looks like they are all enjoying the ice covered water. ^_^
Wow, I've never seen ice like this. The reflection is great.
Maybe they got into the Vodka...
Maybe they have lots of duck fat? :)
I love the ice on the water, lovely shot.
Those are like sharp broken window glasses. Really amazing creatures. :)
