Great shot. I hear you on the cold, although I know you've got it worse than we do. I just can't WAIT for Spring...

Nice catch, Marvin. There's no motion blur. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

What a wonderful capture -- although with how cold it's been around here I imagine some of our birds are pretty "frozen" too! My contribution to the Camera Critters this week is some chilly ducks and geese in fact :-)

Oh, that poor little guy. I do remember reading somewhere that bird's feet don't get cold. How could that be?
