lesmore said it all and I agree, I can't add anything to that

They're all beautiful Mole, but I am especially taken with the snow-covered evergreen branches, and the last photo. Those are magical images!

Another wonderful walk with you in the woods ! I particularly like the two 'wren' shots (think even the first would work better as a landscape) they are lovely and sharp and also the gorgeous shot of the 'blue sky & sun' shot of the ice covered evergreen - you know the one !

Black Bears - how to they react to humans during their Winter breaks from hibernation ?

Mole, you're up to your usual tricks of posting great photos. Love them all!

I like the comparison shot of man bear and dog tracks. I agree with others about the snow covered evergreens.

Awesome shots, all of them. I always love the ice storm shots, there's something about ice that is always interesting to me (since we hardly ever see it). The last one is really fascinating. Hope you were wearing snow shoes with crampons or something like that on the bottom for a hike like that.

GW - Thanks so much! It was indeed a beautiful day in the mountains!

Les - You are too kind!
(perhaps I should give that artist back his eye!)

Hans - So glad you enjoyed these.

MtnMan - Thank you for your kind words! We were blessed with a great winter day!

Kevin - Glad you enjoyed the hike. Cute bird is a Mockingbird (Tennessee's State Bird). Sun through the ice was really just a lucky accident - took a lot of really bad shots of this one branch, trying to get one good one...
As for the bears - I see their tracks and signs from time to time in the winter, but rarely come upon the bears themselves. Our black bears are pretty shy of humans, and usually notice us before we notice them. Main exception to the shyness is where people have been feeding them, or where people mess with the cubs...

Lou - Thanks so much! Tracks shot not so great photographically, but thought it might be useful for size comparison. Those snowy spruces were much prettier than I could capture!

Martin - Thanks for your kind words. Have not yet figured out how to post and include numbers...

Harriet - Ice storms are indeed lovely, although often quite hazardous (to humans and to nature). That last shot is a small stream near the base of Unaka Mt, splashing over a big log - those are frozen splashes!
No, I do not have any snowshoes, just good hiking boots and slow forward progress!
