Ice Sculptures

I have a few left over icy pictures to share...


Interesting ice sculpture capturing the blue sky in the icicles.









It was tough trying to capture the fog rising along the ice covered tree line.




This starling was huddled behind a bush trying to stay out of the wind and conserving energy.




This deer used this bushy tree for cover.

Today is supposed to warm up to over 50 degrees. Flooding is a great concern, with rivers frozen over and no place for the melt to go.

You did a great job capturing the fog! Love the ice sculptures and as much as I admit I hate starlings - you made this one look beautiful!

Great photos.

Very cool (no pun intended) pics, I found your blog by chance and am a wildlife/nature photog also. I'll add you to my blogroll since most of mine includes ranchers.

Hannibal,
I really love ice photos and all the reflections of color and light!! The photo of the ice reflecting the blue of the sky is just stunning. What extremes from freezing temps to 50s! Great post!

Hannibal,

I really love the first photo. Can't stop looking at it. I have really enjoyed seeing photo's from all over the world this month. Seeing the extremes of December. I guess I am the happy medium. It will be in the 70's again today.

It is amazing how something so treacherous can be so beautiful! Great ice and fog shots! I love the starling shot,they are so attractive, too bad they are such obnoxious birds!

Your ice shots are really awesome and I love the detail in that starling. We're covered with ice too and I'm hoping for a warmup.
