Snowflakes and Winter Glimpses

 
this snowfall: slivers of crystals and star flakes





Until we look close, could we ever imagine the varied crystals of snow that grace our world?

  3. comme la chanson:

    Étoile des neiges
    Mon coeur amoureux
    S'est pris au piège
    De tes grands yeux
    Je te donne en gage
    Cette croix d'argent
    Et de t'aimer toute ma vie
    Je fais serment.... :)))) superbes étoiles!

  5. You are right about the redpolls. I have only ever seen them in flocks, or at very minimum small groups, and Arctic Redpolls have always been in a mixed flock with Common Redpolls, never alone.

    1. I once had a small group of redpolls at the feeder David, they ate on the ground. I believe they were the Common Redpolls. I have enjoyd watching this lone bird with all the other types. The last few days another Redpoll has shown up and they sometimes are together. I think it is a common Redpoll.

  7. Hello,Tammie,
    You have many opportunities to photography in the snow season.
    The deer is lovely and the Red poll bird is pretty. I hope he has not got lost from his big family.
    Yesterday, in the early morning,I found frosts on my balcony.I grabbed my camera and rushed into our garden.
    It was sad the frosts were almost melted. I will try it again...some day..this winter.
    Have a good day.

    1. I wish you some frost to photograph and enjoy. They do melt as soon as it gets above freezing. Looks like I have an ice crystal morning to explore soon.

    1. I have only seen the common redpolls twice. One year they came as a small flock to the feeder. Ate mostly on the ground.
      But this year, the single arctic redpoll for two weeks. Now it seems a common redpoll has appeared with it. I have enjoyed watching it and seeing how it behaves differently than the other birds at thee feeder.
