This and That from Winter Leftovers!

Today, we go back to "winter" photos
that I still had to share with you.

It was very, very cold on the day I took this:

The sun broke out over Lake Superior then, but it still didn't warm up!:

This little squirrel stayed around all winter, through cold weather. He ran and ran around and up and down the trees. We call him "Psycho Squirrel":

The beginning of the meltdown!
See the drip at the end of the icicle?:

I thought it was so funny that over a period of a few days
the prevailing winds made a bend in the icicle
and made "ice art":

Closeup dripping!:

These Evening Grosbeaks stayed with us all winter:

Icy fingers!:

Doesn't this look like a bony ice finger dripping?:

How about we make it red, like blood?:

Wait, it's not Halloween..
it is almost Spring.
What was I thinking??
(Me thinks I have cabin fever!!)

Oh my. It does look cold. Please re-pose this in August so the snow pics will cool me down. I love that psycho squirrel. He's cute.

Great shots of winter left overs. Hope it has gone now.

I love all the icicles and that's a great capture of the grosbeak in flight. But of course you know that my favorite is the Psycho Squirrel.

Hilary said...

The bird in flight is so lovely and that icicle so chilling!

Alan Burnett said...

Oh, that is unfair. Just as I am getting used to the idea that winter might be a thing of the past and global warming might mean there will never be another one again - you go and remind me of it all.
