Cold and Wet

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 9 December 2013 in Animal & Insect.

Yesterday we had our first snow which only amounted to about 2 inches. It eventually turned to sleet and then to rain but it was pretty for a while. This was taken while it was sleeting.

Laurette from Johannesburg - Fourways, South Africa

A wonderful capture of this beautiful Red Cardinal in his natural surroundings ! It always amazes me how some of the birds do not have to migrate during winter time and that they can cope with the cold harsh winter weather. Amazing little birds they are !!
Wishing you a happy warm day !

I love how they puff up when it's cold. Rare for us, we have been ice-bound for 4 days - everything closed, traffic impossible, temps in the 20'A and below, and everything covered in white ice and sleet. The news is calling it Icemaggedon. ;-) Mike and I did make it to the store to buy 3 big bags of bird seed. Poor birds, we went from 80 degrees one day, to lower 20's the next!
