A ferocious fight lasting a good 5 mins. It was so cold, must have
taken a toll to expend so much energy fighting.

The contrast between the mallards and the white snow really serves to make the ducks stand out strongly in the image. I'm always surprised to hear that there are still ducks at this time of the year in the types of weather that you describe but then there are still ducks and geese in open water along the Red River here in Winnipeg.

The second image really captures the ferocious nature of the fight between the two ducks with the third wisely staying out of the fight and conserving its energy.

Exceptional! Especially the OP with snow flying in front of the bystander.

Those are great action shots especially the OP. Looks like they have is a referee in the background.
