Default A Winter's Day

Hoary treetops. Nice what polaroid and UV filters do to the sky on a bright day.

On a cold, clear day, you can see the ice crystals in the air when you are looking directly at the sun. Otherwise, they are invisible. It gives a magic aura to the scene. Unfortunately, these picture don't do it justice. Look at a line directly below the sun in the shade.

With apple trees and moose tracks...

This picture has been enhanced in an attempt to show the crystals more clearly.

Here are some pictures - still through the window, but not with the cell phone - of some more grosbeaks (Pinicola enucleator). These first three are of a female.

Here's a pair, with the male having the red head, shoulders, and rump.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill for wisdom and do not confuse strength for skill. Paul Skvorc
