Icy Trees and a Northern Cardinal

It may be spring but that doesn’t mean that the wintery weather has ended. A thunderstorm moved through yesterday and brought in much colder air. After having some hail, the rain changed to sleet and the trees got a light coating of ice. It wasn’t much to see until this morning, when the sun came up and the ice that coated the branches the day before sparkled like thousands of diamonds. While I was outside taking photos of the icy branches, I also caught a photo of the setting moon, plus pictures of a male northern cardinal that was calling out loudly from one of the trees. Here are the photos. (Click on any image for a larger view.)
