I caught him!

When I opened my eyes early this morning and looked at the mountain range behind our cabin - we no longer had "termination dust" on the front range - we had "snow". So I thought I'd go outside and see if I could find Old Man Winter and have a little chat with him. Since all flying insects have now disappeared, I decided to sit and listen to the sounds of the forest. Pretty soon I heard the soft sound of someone creeping through the leaves. I remained very still - practically holding my breath, and the next thing I knew . . . he appeared. I managed to get a couple of quick shots before he gave out a weird cackle and sped off into the forest. He's about as elusive as Big-foot - but this image proves he does exist. *LOL ;)))
