A slice of life from China's Zhejiang province: 5,000 ducks crossing a road.
 
Pictures released by Chinese state media show a street at complete standstill as a farmer herded his 5,000 ducks across the road.
 
The farmer, who identified himself as Hong, and a helper herded the ducks across with just a simple cane.
 
So why did the ducks cross the road? To get to dinner, of course.  The vehicles stopped so that the ducks could cross to feed at a pond on the other side.
