maple leaf under ice
The ice formation on the left looks like a hummingbird to me.
Confession: I adjusted the contrast on this one.

I wore what I call grocery-store-gloves, the little knit one-size-fits-all gloves, under my mittens, then removed the mittens to use the camera. I was able to adjust the settings on my camera while wearing the thin gloves, and my fingers were only a little chilled. Some of my artist friends wear silk glove liners when sketching in the cold. I may try those as well.

The thin layer of ice reminds me of amber...

I immediately thought it looked like a hummingbird too!

Felt a chill looking at it!

Kim: I've tried to photograph leaves under ice before. It's a tricky focusing problem as the leaf will be blurry.
Kristin: I usually don't see these shapes until after I get the pictures home.
Susan: Thank you.
