A Pond within a Lake

This is the first winter I've lived so close to a lake so I've been observing the geese. When the lake froze over for the most part, the geese congregated in and around a small area that was still not frozen. I wonder if they were keeping it open so that they could feed in it and also use it for landing.


  1. I can't imagine being anywhere it gets cold enough for lakes to freeze.

    Hey, all those geese are facing the same direction!

  2. Lakes in winter are fascinating, especially when there are ducks or geese around. I'm glad these geese still have a pond to enjoy.

  3. Great picture. I bet it is fun to watch the geese.
