When the sun comes up over ice, you get a different perspective because ice is a better reflector than water. I won’t bombard you with sunrises but yesterday’s was splendid.
Later in the day I went grocery shopping and when I stopped at a residential intersection, I noticed a crow sitting calmly on the ground and not inclined to be bothered by my car stopped a few yards away. It looked like a pedestrian waiting to cross. Down came my window and up went my phone camera. On my return trip the bird was gone so I pulled up and took a picture of where it had been.
I know that crows are smart and this one gave me an example. Either the air beneath that cover was warmer than the ambient temperature, or the metal suited its feet more than the surrounding patches of snow. Either way I was impressed.
The crafty crow can be quite canny
Finding ways to warm its fanny.
