20) Gazing out the window of his Stone Lake, Wisconsin home while sipping coffee one frigid morning, Dave Shaffer was surprised to see a group of Pine Grosbeaks, rare visitors to his Wisconsin woods. He tucked his pajama bottoms into his boots, threw on a coat, grabbed his camera and tripod, and headed outside. He realized that it was colder than he thought. Way colder: It was 10 below zero. He wasn’t wearing gloves. His breath kept fogging the viewfinder. Luckily, this female grosbeak landed in a nearby spruce. Shaffer held his breath, got the shot, and went back inside for hot coffee.

21) It isn’t unusual for Derek Diehl to see a Snowy Owl in winter along a three-mile breakwater and hiking trail that protects waterfowl nesting sites on Wisconsin’s Lake Butte des Morts. On the day he took this photo, Diehl saw not one but four of the majestic white birds at the site, thanks to a major southward irruption of the birds. He photographed this individual just after the sun rose above the breakwall and began to melt the icicles that had formed due to high winds splashing waves against the shore.
