[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We had an ice storm last night. All the previously fallen snow has an icy crust, the tree branches, etc. are encased with 1/4 to 1/2 inch of ice, and icicles are everywhere. This poor squirrel looked very cold out back standing on the ice crusted snow. The wind was blowing a bit and it made things somewhat frigid.

I had to fully extend the 12X zoom and achieve some digital enlargement through cropping. Not the best photo but I think, given the harsh conditions, it works here.
