31. Morning Mayfly

20070131.jpg

This photo of a mayfly was shot 18 months ago (July 31, 2005). I came across this photo while reviewing some of my older work which happened to be the subject of my latest tip.

You can read it here.

Another shot showing the area around my home covered in ice. This one shows berries on bushes with their ice blanket. Leanne had just pulled in and I liked the way the brake lights illuminated the ice in this shot.

16. Budding Leaves in Ice

20070116.jpg

The weather has been so askew, my daffodils had begun to bloom and I started to get leaves on my hedges in front of my house. With the recent coating of ice on everything, I am sure that my daffodils won't survive and can only imagine the hedges won't be very strong this year.

This is one of the leaf pairs from the hedges coated in ice.
