Well decided that today’s photography challenge was going to be a comparison set of photos of the bubbler in the backyard pond.

The pond is slowly freezing over, and the bubbler is slowly bubbling

The top photo was taken on Tuesday, when the high for the day barely hit twenty degrees outside. It’d been warmish the prior few days (upper forties on Sunday and then upper thirties on Monday–the cold weather came in mid-Monday).

The bubbler really isn’t happy today.

The second photo was taken this evening as I was filling up the bird feeders again. Since it’s been so cold–I’ve actually been filling the back ones up daily, now that it is still light out when I get off work and get home to feed the dogs, fish, and wild birds (cats are fed before going to bed).
