Here are a few more - White-tail deer in my backyard, a tuxedo kitty spotted in the neighborhood and a Red-tailed Hawk.

Whoops! I pulled accidentally those from the Nov folder, but since this forum is new, I hope it's ok.

Here are some Dec shots - a little tiny squirrel and a black-capped chickadee on my second-floor balcony and a tree in the yard

Such an enticing January photo of the month prize..... I'll have to try my luck. The ice nodules were created in freezing weather by the splash of a small stream. The rattlesnake is the Great Basin species, who was kind enough to pose for this portrait even after I nearly stepped on him. The manzanita branch shows the great character they achieve in old age; fabulous wood, too -- eighth hardest in the world, makes beautiful art and the very best kitchen tools.

I'll submit a couple of winter scenes. These are of native plants in my northern Illinois yard.

Those shots are fantastic! The ice is like crystal and the manzanita wood is like nothing I've ever seen!

These are of a few native plants that I could get to in my yard. I had fun taking the photos. Maybe I should have used flash or something. These were the best photos I took. The others were far worse.

I love the way you isolated the berries and seed pods against the snow! Beautiful shots!

Every day is a photoshoot - just point the camera!
