356 - What Am I?


Before a rain, I put the recycled rubber (former tires) feed tubs all together and turn them upside down off the ground, to keep them out of the mud.  We had a big rain storm, followed by a freezing fog the following morning.  The fog had formed ice crystals on everything, so I had to go get my camera (of course!) and photograph some of them.  This is a macro photo of the bottom of one of those rubber feed tubs.  Look at the full size version.  I had so much trouble deciding which photo to post, I put them both up, and could have added a dozen more.    The ice crystals are fascinating!

This one is a horsehair caught on a splinter of wood on a fence post.  Barely visible usually, the hoar frost gives it the appearance of yarn.
