Don't know how they do it. This little guy is about 3" tall and so delicate. And yet able to stand up to snow, sleet, ice, and wind.

Like a miniature Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Love the shallow dof in this image.

I love the visual poetry of this, Larry ... and, of course, you've nailed the exposure! I think this would be amazing printed large ... on canvas ... ron

A wonderful image, full of grace. I like the very short DOF which gives it a feeling of intimacy.
