On the crest of . . .

the new fallen snow.

When feathered friends come to call. ♪ ♫ ♪
I estimate about seven inches overnight.

The snow brings out the best in the Blue Jays plumage. 

The snow peaks on the branch caught my eye.

Apparently he prefers the challenge of the snow covered ear. 

Our chances of a white Christmas 
are usually in the 50/50 range.
So it's always nice to have a pretty snowfall 
in the weeks ahead as we prepare for the holidays.

All work and no play . . .
(Trust me he will find time)😉

Black and White . . .

by default

When I saw the branch of this dogwood tree 
after the overnight snow,
it reminded me of an outstretched hand.

"God has given us two hands, 
one to receive with and the other to give with."

Duck the Halls

The Duck Song - 1
I got hooked on this song and had to watch all three 
just to hear the punch lines.

A friend whose hobby was taxidermy 
hiked about in search of specimens.

 I like that their beauty is preserved after their untimely deaths.
