An icy day!

Icy weather has settled in here at the ten acre woods. I left the warm fire this morn to go out and see what's around the woods. Here's what my camera captured on this Wednesday, January 16th, 2013. 
There is an old barbwire fence that covers a portion of the ten acre woods that was likely placed here in the 50s or early 60s. A drip started to fall, but was frozen before it could hit the ground. This is what would be called "frozen in time."
Very little green is remaining in the woods, however this red cedar tree is trying its best to display its colors. A nice coating of ice is doing its best to cover the green.
We have pileated woodpeckers which are larger than a crow and have a beautiful red crown. They can certainly rip the bark off a tree looking for bugs. 
It's almost as if this tree has been hand hewn with a tool.
Icy under grown, waiting for the big melt.

What's in your woods? Get up and get out!
