The frost locked the lock of ‘friendship’; reminds me of a quote…
“You can’t get too much winter in the winter.” – Robert Frost
It’s just the refraction of light through millions of droplets, explains the simplistic perfection of the creations beyond our imagination.

…not really! 🙂 It was just a warm welcome… this is what I usually get, when i’m out there.
Nat Geo: Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats closely related to lions, tigers, and jaguars. They live in sub-Saharan Africa, northeast Africa, Central Asia, India, and China. However, many of their populations are endangered, especially outside of Africa.
The leopard is so strong and comfortable in trees that it often hauls its kills into the branches. By dragging the bodies of large animals aloft it hopes to keep them safe from scavengers such as hyenas. Leopards can also hunt from trees, where their spotted coats allow them to blend with the leaves until they spring with a deadly pounce. These nocturnal predators also stalk antelope, deer, and pigs by stealthy movements in the tall grass. When human settlements are present, leopards often attack dogs and, occasionally, people.
Leopards are strong swimmers and very much at home in the water, where they sometimes eat fish or crabs.
Female leopards can give birth at any time of the year. They usually have two grayish cubs with barely visible spots. The mother hides her cubs and moves them from one safe location to the next until they are old enough to begin playing and learning to hunt. Cubs live with their mothers for about two years—otherwise, leopards are solitary animals.
Most leopards are light colored with distinctive dark spots that are called rosettes, because they resemble the shape of a rose. Black leopards, which appear to be almost solid in color because their spots are hard to distinguish, are commonly called black panthers.
The Harley Iron 883™ model is the anti-chrome motorcycle—decked in black from front to back with a defiant attitude that embraces the pure essence of riding. This Black powder-coated 883 was a treat for the eyes and when the engine started, it filled my heart with joy :D.

A magical moment from my recent trip to Switzerland.
Mount Pilatus (German: Pilatus) is a mountain overlooking Lucerne in Central Switzerland.
The top can be reached with the Pilatus railway, the world’s steepest cogwheel railway, from Alpnachstad, operating from May to November (depending on snow conditions), and the whole year with the aerial panorama gondolas and aerial cableways from Kriens. Both summits of Tomlishorn and Esel can be reached with a trail. Mount Pilatus has the longest summer toboggan track in Switzerland (0.88 miles or 1,350 m) and the biggest suspension rope park in Central Switzerland.
During the summer, the “Golden Round Trip” — a popular route for tourists — involves taking a boat from Lucerne across Lake Lucerne to Alpnachstad, going up on the cogwheel railway, coming down on the aerial cableways and panorama gondolas, and taking a bus back to Lucerne. – Info from Wikipedia

Cute Yellow!! The word butterfly came from the English word Buttorfleoge. Perhaps because, in mediaeval times, butterflies could be seen hovering around butter-churns or that their excrement is yellowish in colour.
I found some Cool facts about them; Butterfly wings are transparent. Butterflies taste with their feet. Butterflies live on an all-liquid diet. Butterflies can’t fly if they’re cold. Butterflies live just 2-4 weeks, usually. Butterflies are near-sighted, but they can see and discriminate a lot of colours.
