Here's a naturally formed snowball, called a snow roller, found on a steep side of a forest road in the foothills of Boulder County, Colorado on March 20, 2021, five days after a snowstorm dropped about 20 inches (50.8 cm) of snow in the area.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
