' Ducks & Geese enjoying the mostly ice-covered lake...

This photo was recently taken near Evansville's eastside Cracker Barrel. The retaining lake had so many birds just sitting on the ice or swimming in the part that was not frozen, that I could not resist taking a photo with my cell phone. Until I downloaded this to my computer, I did not know about the the five Mallard ducks walking along the sidewalk in the fore ground. This is a typical cold day in southern Indiana with the temperature in the 20's and the ice on the lake is just barely thick enough to hold the weight of the birds... and a bright sunny day!
