    While i was chicago, it snowed a ton, then it all melted during a rainstorm... my father's backyard flooded a bit and made a temporary pond, which my ducks throughly enjoyed.... i took some good pics:

    Here they are a-runnin up the drive way to the back, they were so excited:

    It was so windy, here you can see their feathers getting all ruffled from the wind:

    Just as we were running to the puddle, a huge eagle/hawk/nasty looking bird flew over head, and the ducks immediately ran under us... Here's mingmei under my feet:

    and victor stood by his pops:

    Once we were sure the hawk left, we headed over the melting snow piles:

    I love your pictures and your ducks are beautiful. I have to admit I probably love my quackers just a little more than anyone else. Mine enjoy impromptu swims but how they can break ice and swim in the chunks during the winter I don't know, but they love it!
