frozen beauty

We woke to a frosty world this morning. Yesterday's fog had become spikey bits of frost covering everything. This is the little dish that holds drinking water for the birds who visit our feeders.

Even the rusty rabbit had strange little spines. These little 'creatures' stand watch until the birds return and baby rabbits are born in the spring. That's why I'm linking these to Camera Critters this week.
Frost is the greatest artist in our clime -
he paints in nature and describes in rime.

I just discovered your Blog. Went over a number of your recent and past postings and I must say I love the nature photos. We just had our real first snowfall yesterday March 2nd. Wow, it is beautiful. I will be doing lots of photos of it today and tomorrow. I do like the photos you have and will be following your Blog. Jack
