Beating the Heat! :) (20100901-143525-PJG)
We spent some time at the Sackville Waterfowl Park in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada on Wednesday afternoon, 2010-09-01. It was probably the hottest day of the year, as the humidex was over 40C (104F).
This female mallard definitely had the right idea in the marsh. She kept this up for a good ten to fifteen minutes, before finally going into a flap to shake out her wings.
