Birds and snow together make for poetic wintry scenes, like this one captured by Tony LePrieur in Weaselhead Park, Calgary AB. And thankfully, for birds accustomed to dealing with frigid temperatures, their little bodies are well-equipped for staying cozy thanks to the amazing insulating efficiency of their feathers ... which means we can continue enjoying the pretty wintry scenes without fretting too much.
