Lest you think that our phony winter in Eastern North Carolina has given way to the real thing, I must tell you this is from several years ago when we actually had a heavy 20 minute totally unexpected snowfall. It was just long enough for me to grab this shot of a little Chipping Sparrow bundling up against the big surprise. He didn’t have to wait long for it to melt. By afternoon, just about every trace of it was gone and we were back to the phony winter. Click on the Photograph for a much larger view. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
