I don't think that tree could be any heavier with snow than it is.
You can almost see your reflection in that hawks eye!

suunto, those are fine winter shots. I'm soooo glad I don't have to deal with snow much anymore.

Kildale, I really like your shot of the Cooper's, which will probably beat mine, but I'm sharing mine here because I just think it was very cool to have gotten my own reflection in the hawk's eye. It wasn't something I was aiming for while I took the shot of the captive bird, but it was neat to discover it when I saw the shot on my iMac screen. This was taken at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell, Georgia. Among other services, they rehabilitate injured birds, and those that cannot be released back to the wild are well cared for and used for educational purposes...and great photo ops.

Hi mimbrava. My hawk was taken in the garden. Speaking of reflections, look at this one. Ths is a very small isopod, less than an inch, there are peoples reflections in the lower part, I have added a closer look also.
