Feather flowers of frost!

Hoar frost does look feathery. I toyed with a few titles for this post. One that might ring a distant bell was “They’re coming to take me away, Ha Haaa”. I also misquoted Sandberg before settling on being wordless which is almost always a wiser decision. 🙂

I, too, saw feathers, though without the nice alliteration of “feather flowers of frost.”
You’re finding all sorts of icy treasures this winter!
The world is my frozen oyster right now.
It’s a caterpillar, creeping along on little frost feet, while trying to hide itself away from your prying eyes.

Another cool vision. This one has so many possibilities.
Fantastic! Such a great capture of hoar frost. It really does look like the frost is trying make off with the leaf here.
Thanks, Lemony. That’s how I saw it too, although it also made me think of leaf cutter ants teaming up to carry the whole leaf back home. 🙂
Wow, what a fascinating shot, Steve. Beautiful nature moment.
Thanks, Jane. Isn’t Nature just full of great surprises?
Love that feather frost!
Thanks, Karen. Hoar frost is so delicately and feathery beautiful.
Beautiful – somehow it made me think of ants carrying away a caterpillar
Thanks, Ann-Christine. That’s one of the visions I had but the ants were the leaf cutters trying to save some labor. 🙂
Fantastic image, Steve! A great example of fern hoarfrost.
Thanks, Eliza. One of my favorite finds in winter is this delicately intricate hoar frost.
Jack Frost turns over an old leaf?
Jack’s just an old-fashioned guy wanting to turn back the clock, I guess.
This is one of my favorites, for the way it brings together the cool, abstract nature of ice and the down-to-earth nature of the leaf. It almost seems as if the ice is attempting to levitate the leaf, maybe to some other reality. 🙂 I see I’m not the only one to have that thought.
There were a lot of interpretations of this one and I like them all. Hoar frost often forms where a solid object touches ice but this was the first time I’ve seen an object suspended above the frost. There’s a story to this one besides a picture of frost and or a leaf. Thanks, Lynn.
