This is NOT a lamp on a post, the snow is only around 1 foot deep with some drifting. The feeder was un-hooked and dropped by a crafty squirrel, later set upon a stonewall to be repaired.
Maybe
someday

That was one smart squirrel. He helped you make a good winter shot though.

Yes, I agree with Sandy -- a VERY smart squirrel.
You are really getting pelted with the snow this year. I just went out to a webcam in Buffalo, NY and saw the snow still pilling up with a temp today of 23 degrees F. (-5C).

And here was me thinking you had had about 10 feet of snow: yes, a very crafty wee squirrel that occasioned this shot, Jenn.

Good shot, I really thought that it was very deep snow. We haven't had much snow here, but the torrential rain and 100mph gales, bringing all of their problems, have been horrendous.
So the bright and calm day was very welcome.

The snow covered feeder has taken on an animal shape.

Great image describes a winter story extremely well.


"the snow is only around 1 foot deep" Grin That description in your write up had me laughing because where I live that amount of snow would be considered a blizzard! We received 13" of snow one time back in 1981 that broke all records and shut everything down until it melted away 24 hours later.

No snow here Jenn - today it was downright springlike. Looks like you all have your share of it though.

That pesky squirrel has spoiled it for those poor birds! You certainly have had some snow, we've escaped it this year, but we've had our wettest winter since records began though!Sad
