I have never seen a bird rest in the snow before. That looks really cold, but the bird seems comfortable. Really great shot!

About MossMountain

MossMountain

I have been a photographer, both professionally and as a hobby, for 35 years. I shoot with a Nikon D200 and three "antique" fixed length Nikon lenses that I could probably no longer afford to buy. As a professional I specialized in sailing and sailing boat racing and worked as a freelancer for many major magazines. I currently live on the edge of Glacier National Park, one of the most photographic places on earth, and have gone back to taking pictures just for the sheer joy of it.
