Watching this little mallard come in for a landing on the ice will keep you smiling all day.
Mallards and other puddle ducks need open water for their daily activity, right? Obviously not, and when you see what this drake did to join his pals, you will enjoy it immensely.
You’ll laugh, you’ll smile… you’ll be looking for your 12-gauge.
I think that little duck was just having fun with it. I’ve seen puddle ducks land on hard water before, but it never seems to be the nice, slick ice that you see here.
It looks like there’s open water nearby, so these mallards are probably just loafing there. Cheers to the person who took this video for having a camera ready at the right time!
Will you have yours ready when something fun like this happens right in front of you?
