This was going to be a photo essay on branches, the sunlight hitting them in just the right way the other morning, revealing so much texture, depth, and color.
But I have a bird feeder underneath these branches, and the birds kept getting in the way of my branch photos.
|I didn't know that wrens ate seed!|
|Don't think that expensive Safflower seed is squirrel-proof.|
Some of them do like it!
|Um, why is this water hard?|
|House finch (behind the feeder) brings even more color to the party!|
I didn't completely give up on the branches though...
Neither the bird photos nor the branch photos turned out great, but sometimes Nature doesn't reveal itself perfectly.
Watching birds at a feeder in winter is like watching the fish in the pond during the summer -- I could do it for hours I think.
