Best of the Week: Choosing Ice Skating

I have a cousin who is an avid bird watcher. There are few birds he does not know about. I was with him years ago and told him the story of a seagull I observed playing in the surf and he assured me that the bird was not playing but hunting. He told me how hard the bird’s life is and how there is no time for play.

This week I observed some ducks/geese(?) sunbathing. After a while several of them ventured out onto the ice. They could have went in the water, dove for food, etc, but instead they chose the ice. Why?
If I had not had that conversation with my cousin all those years ago I would have decided the ice was more fun.
I wish I knew.
Maybe.
It’s possible I am better off believing they wanted to ice skate instead of swimming.

Winter is by no means my favorite season but as a visual person I seek to find the beauty in everything. Click here to see my vision of Winter.
