Ducks on an Icy Pond

I was driving by a small park near downtown Battle Creek, Michigan the other day and I saw there were still ducks, geese and swan out on the pond.  I pulled into the parking area for a few minutes, and took a few shots with my camera.  Seeing the ducks all collected on the ice near the water was very interesting, and colorful.

It also looks a bit surreal to see the contrast between the ones on the ice, and the ones swimming just beyond with almost a seamless transition of the water.  They did not seem to be bothered by the ice, as they are covered with their down feathers.  The scene made for an interesting spectacle of our feathered friends.
