The deer went out on the frozen stream and dug a small hole
to get to the water...we don't know why, for the stream was running
free just a short distance away.
The ice was catching the sun and flashing back brilliant crystals of color.
The camera wouldn't catch them...unless I took it out of focus:
What a great day to be a naturalist!
I glanced up and saw a yellow ball in the tree. Do you see it?
It's an oak apple, one of the many many types of galls that form on
oak trees. I will do a post about these soon...you will see
how fascinating they are.
Buds on the prickly ash - a brilliant rusty orange.
Now there's a Christmas Tree with real Icicles!
More to come in the next post: Ice on Flowers.
