We often get hoar frost on the Prairies, on those winter (and yes, fall and spring, too) days when early morning ice fog condenses, freezes, grows on plants, grasses, trees. But I don't always stop, take a deep breath, and look...
And so today, a couple of images taken with a macro lens (click to enlarge) to show this delicate beauty on a leaf and branches:
