    Terrific winter macro!

  • Greatly appreciate your very kind words, Al. Thanks so very much. A dose of freezing rain’s a pain, but it does have good side effects.

    I like your new (old) avatar.

  • LOL! Just a temporary festive thing, Al. Back to the old fart in the New Year….or maybe something a little different…..

    ’love this series Mike!!! Their colours must really stand out from all that white snow and ice.

  • Many, many thanks, Aileen! They are bright little spots in amongst all the white! It’s surprising, but there aren’t too many red ones left now.
