This morning we woke to frozen frost everywhere. Everything was a gorgeous white. After driving my hubby into work so I would have the 4X for the day, (Besides the fact that he possibly has a broken knee, to be looked at tomorrow) I came home and took the camera out for a quick spin.

While the thermostat read 28 degrees, I found this little guy sitting up in our star magnolia, just a singing away happy as can be. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I think I will set up my tripod and wait for them to come to the feeders today, maybe I will get a good shot, since they are not shy in this cold, the need to eat frequently overcomes any fears they may have had.

I hope everyone is comfy and warm out there!

Excellent capture. A hummer in the snow. I have never seen another like it. Although, I have seen a few flitting around our place but have never been successful at capturing them. Guess I should put out feeders.

We are due for another storm tonite or tomorrow. Hope you all stay warm and dry, if it hits your area.

This is a great shot. I really like the perspective too. I don't think I've ever seen a picture of one perched like that. I've only seen them around a feeder or flowers with their wings blurred.

Definitely warm and comfy here in the Sunshine State. We're supposed to hit 80F here again today.

They must acclimate to the cold Cergie, there were two when I frist started shooting, and eventually they both flew away. :)
