Well it was last weekend briefly. I trudged round the garden looking for detail shots and this Clematis Tangutica seed-head caught my eye.
Fantastic shot, I like very much the details of the snow here and the light :)

Excellent photo - but in a strange way reminds me quite a lot of a Maltese Poodle :)

Good information thank you. Excellent composition to enjoy watching! I love this plant covered by ice ball. It seems a mysterious ball of ice cream flavor! Excellent! Greetings!

Excellent shot..it looks like the snow has a beard. The light behind the beard is perfect. Have a great weekend.

@MrsAmber: It's the same family as the wild clematis you see in hedgerows and scrub-land in wintertime that is known as 'Old Man's Beard' but this one has a profusion of yellow bell shaped flowers in summer.
Lovely image Grouser, it looks like you guys are steeling all our snow, we didn't get much this winter :-)

@Roman: It's not over yet ;)
O yes...it's like a head and a hat. Interesting shot Grouser.

Well spotted and beautifully photographed! I really like this shot! I must say, I am a bit baffled at the great dof at F10 or did you blurr the background during touch-up? :)

@Marion: No it's a narrow depth of field because it's a telephoto shot. I zoomed in to compose the frame.
I like the backlit look of this snow covered seed head. The rest of the picture is subdued with less light making your subject "pop" even more.

Beautiful light and closeup .

Good evening, Grouser,
it looks very interesting. At first glance it looks like long beards, which still hangs heavy cream. They have presented it very well and I like it. For that I give you 5 stars ***** beautiful evening for you and thank you for all your nice comments. Dear greetings Christel

Nice caps they wear! I guess we get a few more days respite until the next lot arrives.

@Curly: Don't know what you got Curly but we had a first taste of spring here today. Warm sun, birds tweeting and all the snowdrops coming in to flower. Lovely
Like a puppet, very original & amusing & nice at the same time !

Beautiful, almost fragile, great light.

It looks like somebody at the hair salon waiting to get their hair washed... look at all the shampoo! On a serious note: This is beautiful! I love the detail and that 'backlit' light is stunning.
