Pictures for Pam, Day 101: Snowflake on a Sporophyte

Pictures for Pam, Day 101: Snowflake on a Sporophyte
(+1 inset!) (please view large to see the snowflake better!) :D

There was a very light dusting of snow this morning which began to melt as I walked up and down the driveway. It was so nice to hear the birds doing their thing. I couldn't help hearing several Acorn Woodpeckers being loud and obnoxious but I love to hear them yelling at each other! They are so rude! :D We also have two kinds of noisy jays. Stellar's and Scrub Jays both vie for the title of "Most Obnoxious" along with the Acorn Woodpeckers. It's always fun to see them though, such pretty birds.

Today I've decided to share a couple of snowy sporophyte pictures to go with the light dusting of snow this morning. I took them a couple of weeks ago when I woke up to a world covered in white. I really hoped to get some unusual macro pictures and I sure got lucky with these images! At the time, I had no idea that I'd captured actual snowflakes until I looked at them on the computer. Two of the pictures needed to be tightly cropped so I made them into a collage. I hope you enjoy them--the buried sporophyte makes me laugh! (I provided two sizes so you can see the inset snowflakes better)

Pam, you made a beautiful snowflake artwork which I admire every time I look at it. It reminds me of kaleidoscopes, something I always enjoyed as a kid. Maybe that's one of the reasons that I love abstracts so much! I hope you are having a good day Pam!! *BIG HUGS*

OMG Janet this is absolutely stunning. You've actually captured a snowflake in all its glory. I am completely overwhelmed at the beauty of these photos. These photos are worthy of being shown in the National Geographic magazine. I don't know what else to say about them as I'm sitting here wide mouthed.

You didn't mention the frogs singing - didn't they sing today? Or most probably they were drowned out by all those birds singing and complaining!!! It was bitterly cold here today, and so I didn't go out for long. It is so quiet here in my home, that all I hear are the birds. The seagulls really squawked loudly today, they did sound as if they were complaining and I think that's because my neighbours had a man go up onto the roof and place some rubber spikes to stop the seagulls from nesting up there. Now they have to find another roof to have their young. Although I can fully understand why they got that man to do it, they were continually being bombarded by the gulls, especially when the young were around, but I did like to see the young walking around - sort of a family thing. They've been nesting there for at least 60 years!!!!
