Just trying to stay cool...

Haven't been outside as much as I would like to recently due to the heat.

However, I did run across this Mallard family just trying to stay cool along the bank of the Ohio River in New Richmond today while out and about. Mommy Mallard was trying to keep the little ones cool :-)
