First Snowstorm: Part TWO

Continuing today with photos I captured when we received
12 inches of snow
during our first snow this season on Nov. 9th.





Thinking of flying south, no doubt!:






Branches with leaves laden with snow:















We still had apples on many of our trees:








Cattails of white!:







Doves hiding for shelter:







Remember my garden frog?
Well, his umbrella wasn't ready for THIS!:







Snowy autumn leaf:







These leaves won't stay green for much longer!:

We went for a ride later in the day and got some more snowy shots for you, so stay tuned....

I gasped, What a beautiful capture of the first snow of the year. The vibrant blue of the Jay against the backdrop of the snow.... Outstanding.

Beautiful photos. I love the doves sitting in the branches and your little frog looks cold. Those pictures look like a winter wonderland. I'm looking forward to seeing more snowy scenes from your drive.

Can't say I miss it but your photos are beautiful. My favorite is the dove convention. Strength in numbers?

I love these snowy scenes. The snow makes each tree and twig look like lace.

We have some snow in the area this morning, and widespread snow rain mix. Cold and nasty.

OMG, how amazing those photos are! But i really pity that very beautiful bird, it looks real cold and lonely. I also post a bird today, even if i am not a birder, and this is my first bird catch.
