How a couple of weeks have changed the whole landscape. The Boreal forest that’s my neck of the woods has turned into a winter wonderland.
Cattails in the late afternoon light:
Snow may cover the ground, the woods are lovely still, teeming with life.

A seed in the beak is better than two in the snow:
Seed or no seed, this Pileated Woodpecker is busy pecking up the right tree:
But the most fascinating of all is my discovery of a Snowy Koala, a rare sighting indeed:
I’d rather be Down Under taking photos of his cousins, but this little tree hugger just made my wintry day more bearable.
The woods are lovely, still.
