  23. I really like your photo of the cardinal with the icy branches in the background. I also like your moon shot. Very well done!

    ReplyDelete
  24. When I see the moon like this, I've always been told that it is holding water. In your case, it's holding ice and snow... ha

    Great set of photos.. Poor little birdies. Glad you can feed them in this weather.

    Hope you didn't lose your electricity during that storm.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
