Wonderful effect with the sunlight shining upon those frozen (and ephemeral) stalactites. Wish you a Great Year, Barbara, with all the foxes and more beautiful creatures you have in your "garden" ;-)

Superb shot! Wonderful light and precise action shot with the capturing of the drips as they are falling. Excellent image 5*

P.S. I didn't think it got that cold in Texas?

@Frances: You thought right, but starting on Dec. 6 we had a rare occurrence - an ice storm that paralyzed most of north Texas. It happens so seldom here that cities are not prepared or do not have enough equipment for clearing roads and streets. Schools, businesses and churches closed for a few days. It almost never gets that cold for very long, but even after the sleet and freezing rain stopped, the ice didn't melt for several days.

Now..when you get so many icicles hanging from the roof, you know you're in winter for sure! I'd love to have here just a touch of white powder (snow) to cover everything...but NOT an ice storm! I like the angle you chose for this shot, it makes winter look...homely!
