Here’s another one from last week. No time to go out and shoot this week, but alas, the weather wasn’t that great anyway. But great wintery weather is coming our way again. Hopefully next weekend will bring lots of snow and ice! I look forward to spending some time at a new feeding station that looks very promising. I do have lots of images of birds in a snowy environment, but not so many with snow flurry actually falling down. So fingers crossed and spending enough time in the hide is all I can do. The rest is up to the Weather Gods and the birds.

The image above is a detail of a thin layer of ice in a local small stream. I tried to get right above the Dark Eye to get everything within depth of field, but it soon became clear that the ice did not have any intention to keep me safe from the lurking icecold water below. So I refrained from going any further and took the shot from the safe shore.
