I see the dragon in the ice, head down, tail up,
and graceful. Nature is a busy artist in Winter,
frosting things and icing things all over the
World! Busy! Neat shot, Katy!

I think St George is slaying his way through the Christmas shopping, hence why he hasn't turned up! :-) (hope he turns up soon or this could dragon... heh heh)
Super capture, congrats on the blue border.

Thank you Barb, chicka, Doerthe, delver and Susan!

Our cold spell seems to be over (for now) so they won't be growing, but yes! That sounds like a really fun (slow) project!

Delver, I titled a previous photo of this frost creation 'Dragonslayer' and WurzelDave said he'd send St George (the REAL dragonslayer) out this way... just for fun!

Thank you Trudy. Today became overcast, so I shone a flashlight on it to illuminate it just a bit.
