[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo #6 in my series on frost flowers.
Frost flowers are formed when water inside a plant escapes through a split in the plant's skin, and meets very cold air. The water freezes quickly, but more water continues flowing, thus pushing the ice further out from the plant. The process takes several hours.

Dear William,
I did not know of Frost Flowers until now - find it very interesting - and add it to my Documentary Photos. (The Theme is actually called Animal Behaviour, and I still have to create a theme for Plants. Sorry about creating confusion!)

How long will this phenomena remain - or is this solely regulated by the temperature?

I like very much your presentation i.e. you filled the screen with your Flower.

Your excellent focus and depth of field offer many details, allowing the viewer to appreciate the surroundings.

The natural colours make it a pleasant experience to view your photo.
I wish you a good week,
Kind Regards
