The first order of business today is to make duck food. Siri slices up trunks of palm trees, adds some grains and then hand grinds the mixture. This then becomes food for the ducks and geese she raises. Nakhon Nayok, Thailand, Feb 03, 2017. via 500px ift.tt/2kwyrk3
Ducks, the reason why the beautiful reflections on Derwent Water didn't last long. With a lot of the water being frozen the ducks didn't have a lot of area to swim in, and when they saw me, they saw food.. ok I did share a sandwich with them, it was cold :-)
Ps. just look at that cloud over Skiddaw.

Just some impressions from a summer party yesterday.
Captured with a Nikkor 85 mm ƒ1:1.8 on my Nikon Df, post processed in Lightroom using VSCO Film Pack.
I was taking photos in a public place, when an professional photographer happened to come. He was using a Canon 7D with a 70-200mm lens. Because I was using the T3i at the time, he let me put my camera on his lens! I got this shot. It was incredible using such a long telephoto lens that must have weighed like five pounds! It was really long, too! I know the photo is slanted, but I really like it!
If these ducks aren't starving, they can't be too far from it. The first year the lake has been frozen over, there is only a tiny bit of open water, and HUNDREDS of ducks and geese living there. Where it is open it is shallow, and there can't be much left to eat.
The fish kill remains have long since been gobbled up. The way the ducks all storm any bird which appears to have found food, they appear to be getting desperate.
Yeah, I tossed 'em several pounds of corn...but it is a drop in the bucket at best. There is a fellow who comes through every day with a sack of bread, and the birds treat him like the Pied Piper. (Please don't get into the relative merits of carbohydrates when the birds are starving.)
No prospect of any melting for at least the next week...probably longer. I hope spring finds all of these gorgeous ducks and geese still prospering.
