This mallard had a bit of difficulty getting from the water of the pond up onto the ice shelf on the bank. He was a little less wary then his companions, all of which fled when they noticed me. He climbed up on the ice, looked a me long enough for me to make a couple of images. And then decided to leave as well.

He looks a little forlorn as he surveys the ice. Great shot.

Poor little guy he looks so confused. He provided you the opportunity to take a great photo.
