    Default Some more winter type photos .....

    Silly birds -- didn't want to stay still to get their pic taken (the chickadees were really bad about it -- zipping in and out). As is typical for a Michigan winter, been really really grey/overcast -- apologies in advance for the darkness of several of the photos. So having uttered that disclaimer ....



    Thought this "portal" (caused by the exhaust fan from the oven) in the overhanging snow was rather nifty.







    Now some birdies:

    Love the pics.snowing like crazy here at the moment. We are to get up to 6 inches and then freezing rain on top of it. They are predicting another big snow event for Saturday. Looks like it is going to be a long winter!

    Great pictures Pavel. I particularly love the third picture of the icicles and the last 'family portrait' of the 3 birds.
