Stunning close up!
Its name comes from Latin hyemalis that means "of the winter".

Marta, I appreciate the kind words. I do pride myself on the fact that all of my photos are of wild creatures, in the wild. I also do not bait to get photographs. I'm glad you liked my picture!

Now, this is what I am talking about. Real pictures made in the wild and beautiful!
We Rangers are a bit disappointed with the bit too many pics we have been seeing in Noah made in zoos and claimed as being done in the wild.
Dennis, here you are an example of real wild photograph of exceptional beauty and professionality.
People like you are really valued here in Noah..keep posting! :-)
