When I shot this kadar camera, which daily photograph / Canon PoverShot SX110 IS / my smile never left his face. I was impressed by the sight where ducks standing on one leg on the ice. And at the same time hiding their heads from the cold - as if they were statues, sculpted by nature. Photography as a hobby for many, not an end in itself, but one possibility to be close to nature and to study. Only later I sought in the available literature the answer of my question. In many bird species that winter in the aquatic environment standing on one leg on the ice is connected with the need to regulate the heat exchange between the body and the icy water surface. When the duck standing on one leg on the ice she prevented by this instinct rapid heat loss. Beyond that whenever looked this photo still smile, even now. And if you happen to win a photo contest I would have bought a better camera - to continue to not only be close to nature, but to understand it better.
