Country Roads and Wooden Fences
Still snowed in, the critters get little exercise, and photo opportunities or funny stories about them are scarce.

I love this gnarled old horse chestnut tree across the road from my house. It was badly damaged in a storm last year, so several limbs were topped for safety - but it is still beautiful. I look at it and see barefoot children climbing its intricate boughs in summer.
And one shot of the hills to the east, taken just before sunset:
