Now that the snow is quickly melting, gotta put up these last snow pics.
I'd love to get some honest critiques here. I kind of like this shot but I'm wondering what I could have done better.

many thanks!

That almost looks like a giant caterpillar. You got a little texture on the snow as well which is great.

Other possibilities relate to isolating your main subject. A larger aperture, if the lens is fast, would have allowed you to blur the background more. Postprocessing could also be used to blur the background more.

Selecting your subject and then doing an invert would give you the background. Then slightly darkening the background would help isolate the subject as well.

Thanks tegan!

Aperture was F4 but you might well be right I could have chosen F2.8 for an even blurrier background.

I like how the focused portion of the picture is off to the side. Good job.
