Hide And Seek
Animals that are year-round residents in the northern Rockies are adapted to an environment where food is not usually plentiful. The chickadees, with their curious nature, will find food wherever it is. The rosebush will hold on to its fruit for them well into the winter months, and provides a splash of colour in the winter white landscape.
Besides the chickadee, there is another winter resident in this painting. When sitting still, the white winter coat of the Snowshoe Hare makes him almost invisible; a great way to avoid predators while looking for food.
