Photo of the Week: Nov 25, 2012

A handsome mallard drake poses for his portrait on a snowy day at Lake Josephine in Riverfront Park, Billings Montana.

These ducks will winter here as long as there is open water and access to plants below for feeding.  If water bodies freeze over, they may migrate south.  These days, it’s uncommon for the lake to completely freeze over, so it’s easy to visit the ducks here all winter long.
