Delicate frost crystals feather an apple sucker stem

I came across these fine, delicate frost feathers growing from a sucker stem next to one of the apple trees in our back yard. There was a hole just below the stem and next to the tree trunk where I’ll wager some critter has taken up winter residence allowing its warm breath to create just enough moisture for the crystals to form.
