WEEKEND: Cold Duck


By popular demand, Cape Charles’ own Ron Wrucke is sharing another of his magnificent bird photographs. His description: “In the spirit of the season, and our cold weather that doesn’t seem to want to go away, an image of some very cold ducks trying not to swim.” A duck out of water? Ron more or less got his ducks in a row, but male mallards outnumber females 6-4. Someone got left out of the cold.

See more of Ron Wrucke’s local photographs at his website, easternshoreimaging.com.

Readers are invited to submit their favorite local photos for Weekend editions of the Wave, when the picture extends all the way across the page. (Published January 18, 2014)
