Snowy Morning

I love waking up to find the world blanketed in a fresh covering of snow. The transformative power of an inch of white ice crystals never fails to amaze me. Waking up to an inch of fresh snow this morning, I just about managed to throw a pot of coffee down my gullet before I was out the door, a fresh injunction from my sister to take my camera ringing in my ears. The light was poor so I apologise in advance for the photos, but I'm going to share them anyway, simply because it was such a great start to the day.

Black-capped Chickadee

White-breasted Nuthatch

American Goldfinches

Northern Flicker

Eastern Fox Squirrels


  1. Great winter photos! I like the snowy forest. Cool capture of the Nuthatch in a typical pose.
