The Mill Pond ~ Richmond Hill

A thin layer of ice covers much of the Richmond Hill Mill Pond today, except at the north end, where a pair  of resident Mute Swans share a small open lagoon with a hundred or so Mallards.

While most of the ducks chose to paddle about in the last remaining bit of unfrozen water, some of their millpond brethren got cold feet standing on the thin ice.
