Bare naked legs

A Place for All

Just the other day while working at Placid Lake State Park, I observed a group of ducks gathered around a large space of open, ice-free water.

Of those birds on the ice, some were standing squarely on both feet while others were laying down; but there were three ducks who stood defiantly in the cold on one leg. One of those three even had its head twisted back and tucked into its plumage making it look like a one-legged, headless duck!...
