First Sighting and Ice

After yesterday's post this one probably isn't near as exciting but we had our first sighting of an American Goldfinch today! Isn't she a beauty?!

The ice and wind did not deter her from finding the feeder. My son captured the only clear and focused shot. All the rest focused on the rain hitting the window.  

I did get some pretty cool shots of the ice earlier this morning. Some neighbors down the road a bit have a small vineyard and the ice was so frosty looking on the rows. Maybe I should have tried for a panorama shot?

I boosted these next ones so the cows could be seen better but I was intentionally focusing on the holly bush and ice.

And then the fence...

I really like this next one of a couple of my daffodils getting ready to bloom...

How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
