Sleeping Beauties...

First a zoomed in look...

Look at all those sleeping beauties...can you imagine sleeping on the water like this?  In single digit weather?

This pond/strip pit is on the south side of the road...thus always looking slightly towards the sun.  Add that to the fact that I cannot see my screen I have a hard time getting a good picture.

If you will right click on these photos, then click open in new tab, or open in new window, I think it will be a big bigger photo.

What an amazing sight! And most of them are sleeping! I guess they don't feel the cold. That's amazing, too. Have a wonderful weekend!

So many! And how can they sleep and float at the same time? Way out there, you would think they are vulnerable to predators; asleep and not hidden.

Amazing- we don't have flocks that gather up like that - they seem to all spread out over the bays. Glorious captures. I just click on the picture and it goes to full page - wonderful wonderful!!!!
