Feathers Of Ice ..

Hello my dear friends,

Mother Nature never seizes to amaze me when it comes to her creativity.
Every where out there, there are the most beautiful creations to be found and I was lucky enough to find one of her makings right at home, on our deck in our backyard a few days ago.
I don't often go out deliberately in search of something to take photographs of ~ it mostly just happens and it was just by chance that I discovered what seems to look like 'feathers of ice' because that is what I see when I look at this.

Please judge for yourself and take a look  ...

Feathers made of ice!

What do you think?
No matter what you think to see, one thing is for sure ... Mother Nature did it again! A masterpiece of her art and I am so happy I discovered it and was able to capture it too.
And last but not least ...
... of course I couldn't end this post without sharing another one of Mother Nature's little beautiful creations.

It is one of her tiny feathered creatures ... all puffed up and keeping warm on a cold Winter's morning.
To tell you the truth, I can't wait to see what I will see next and hopefully capture, so I guess I will just have to wait and see. Until it happens again, my work table has creations in the make sitting on top of it and there are many things on my to~do list as well for this year I am sure I won't be bored.
Do visit me again some time here at Todolwen when ever you have a spare moment.
It is always so nice when you do!
Oh ... don't forget! There is still time to enter your name to my GYB giveaway ~ the link is on my right sidebar. Good luck to every one that enters! 
I hope you are my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative e day.
Karen B.

  2. Those ice feathers are simply gorgeous, Karen. Nature is so magical! You only need to walk out your door to be amazed by beauty. And I do love seeing those sweet creatures all plumped and fluffed to keep warm. Hoping you're keeping warm, too.

  3. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing one of Mother Nature's magical moments. Don't you wish you could bring it inside and set it somewhere to look at it forever! Alas, that is the beauty of her work, every day is new and we don't know what magic will come tomorrow.

  7. What beautiful pictures you have there, Karen. The bird is especially pretty. At this moment, we have ice everywhere......and although it's beautiful too, it is wreaking havoc. Trees limbs are breaking under it's pressure. We have been without power for 6 hours. Hope it comes back on soon. Take care!
