These old bones...
Ha... I bet that you are thinking that I am talking about me and these old bones, but I am not.
You shall see when you scroll down what I am referring to as old bones ;)
Many people love the cold weather, Winter sports, snow sledding, skiing, etc. When I was younger with younger bones ;) I loved to go out and build snowmen with the children and I also have done my share of sledding over the years.
The temperatures have been very cold here and we have had very light snow, just a dusting on some days. Last evening we had an icing, not a bad one, but enough to make things look like they are tucked under glass~

Maggie's MOSAIC MONDAY
Wednesday Around the World at Communal Global
The afternoon sun shinning on the tiny icicles made them appear to look like little jewels glistening with their exquisite beauty~
I liked the way the open Rose of Sharon flower seed pod seemed to hold one of the reflection ice gems ;)
Sunrise and ice~
American Kestrel hunting over the local fields~
Red-Tailed Hawk wire hunting when it noticed me from hearing my shutter click on the glass~
Bald Eagle posing & preening~
Evidently a Raccoon was killed in front of our property last week and the Black Vultures made an appearance to aid in getting rid of the carcass~
Red Fox Squirrels are a real favorite of mine. We don't have them in our neighborhood, but further out the country lanes~
I still had my camera set for the Super, Blue Blood Moon last weekend and forgot to change the settings when I shot pictures of this wee little Yellow-Rumped Warbler...it's too cold for it to be here...poor little one~
I made sure that I was up and out with all three dogs on the morning of the big moon event, after selecting the best spot for me and shot a few pictures including the top one here. My perfect spot didn't last long as I began though, when a huge dark bank of clouds began to roll in. Well blah...what can you do, nothing, you just hope it will move quickly, but it was a slow mover like molasses slow moving. The entire scene was lost and it was 150 years since the last showing of such...ah well it was fun to get out with the dogs, and they enjoyed the ride~
White-breasted Nuthatch found a place to hide a seed~
The husby took me for a country lane ride after picking up some Starbucks coffee Saturday morning. Of course the three dogs came along for the ride too~
These old bones, the starkness of the trees as well as the charm of the old buildings below...
A pair of Red-Tailed Hawks hunted alongside each other~
Old barns, silos and service stations creak with age old bones...their structures falling away in places, weathered, rusted wood, what stories could they tell if they had a voice~
An old Ballardsville Service Station~
The natural beauty of aging wood, I love the green on here~
Can you see it...we didn't see it when we were there, not until I came home and ran the pictures in my photo program. At first glimpse my husby thought it to be an Owl, now that would have been a great find. This cat though, how on earth does it get up on that rounded roof...what could it possibly be hunting from that vantage point, or was it just wanting a spot of fresh air~
Two old silos, one day they shall be gone, just like everything...they are old and I have been seeing them since 1978 and there is no telling how long they were there before that~
