Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 12:49 am:

I spotted today's top shot in Marv and Ellie Hopf's photo album, where Ellie, said:

Wind & snow make some interesting creations. Marv says it's a bird. I see a chicken. Guess that's still a bird... just more specific. What do others see in it? Do others have some photos of nature made snow sculptures?"
So of course I had to take Ellie's challenge, by doing a search of the gallery albums. It worked and I came up with the other two shots here today. The second one is from Joyce Tormala, who thought this fallen snow looked like a Mama bear and her cubs.

The third photo came by way of Brenda Leigh's gallery album. With the snow blanketing a lonely fern, it gives the illusion of a giant snow scorpion, making it's way across the snowscape. So, what do you see in these shots of nature's winter artwork?

Fun pictures today. I see an armadillo (sp?) in the third picture.

It is amazing what a person can see and find if they take the time to look and see. ;O) Love the pictures.

Very cool! We haven't had a trace of snow in January. But it's sure been cold! This morning as I'm getting ready to go to work, it's -17. Yippee!!!! Factor in the wind, and I'm sure it'll be nothing but pleasant out there.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 09:12 am:

Oh, yes. Very interesting.

It kinda looks like a gentleman bowing before his lady, like in the movies just before they dance a waltz or something.

Top two are roosters, bottom is a Sonoran Desert centipede.

By Scott D. Irwin (W8ufo) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 10:12 am:

I saw a chicken in the first one, failed the ink blot test on the second one, and saw a centipede on the third one.

After reading the comments, I can definitely see the bear in the second one, but instead of seeing cubs I see small birds...like the bear is interested in their activity on a branch.

Stay warm...and thanks for the daily glimpse back in to the U.P.

WOW those are awesome, sure makes you think.

How is everyone today?

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 11:11 am:

I see a frog in a tug of war in the second one.

By JH (Thumbgardener) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 11:35 am:

I think the 2nd picture looks like a bear and chickens on a log with the bear waiting to gather eggs, and if that doesn't happen, maybe a chicken dinner.

By Helen Marie Chamberlain (Helen) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 11:57 am:

Photos make for "interesting", don't they? All a matter of interpretation. Thanks to all of you for sending these in.

By Cindy Barga (Hoosiergirl) on Saturday, January 9, 2010 - 01:43 pm:

I think the first picture looks like a large cat roaring.

By Morning Glory (Lucylu) on Monday, January 11, 2010 - 08:21 am:

The first picture, to me, looks like Jesus praying in the garden. Beautiful.
