Frosty Morning

December 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Well, the seasons have changed again in Idaho.  Winter is here!  I'm getting over an illness so when the snow fell recently I didn't get to go into the field.   What I did do though, was go upstairs and open our laundry room window (what I like to refer to as my blind) and take some pictures the window.  It was much warmer, even with the window open, than going outside with the temperature in the teens.

Frost was covering everything on this bitter cold morning.  I was able to isolate one single leaf against a backdrop of our backyard fence.  It helped the frosty edges stand out.

We had some wildlife out this morning.  A Northern Flicker was eating berries off our Virginia Creeper.  A squirrel was running up and down trees and across the fence.  He had snow on his whiskers...so cute!  We also had some finches, Juncos, sparrows and robins around.

The sun appeared as if to tease anyone hoping for warmth, but the cold is going nowhere today.

Well, I must scurry off for now.  Let me know in the comments what wildlife comes to your yard in the wintertime.
