Glistening hoar frost delights captured on a frosty, frosty, down right nasty its a darn cold out day.
Precious visitors to warm the heart on cold blustery days have brought extra joy and excitement into my heart which helps offset the doldrums of the severe -21 temps. Joy shared is joy amplified so on that note I share these delightful images with you.
With the deep-freeze cold we have had extra visitors. This female Downey woodpecker has been coming on the coldest days to the suet feeder. The male has been to the stump out back pecking out native bee progeny but has yet to find the suet.
House Finch male, below female. These are our regulars. About twenty show up as a group throughout the day though when its real cold their numbers multiply emptying the feeders enforce.
Love the varied blues to soft gray.
We went for a saturday drive and took in the beauty of the thick hoar frost.
This lone tall tree reminds me of an Emily Carr painting.
Black-capped Chickadee is another regular for both seeds and suet.
One more of the precious flicker.
Hope you have enjoyed the beauty.
