Bare Trees

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 363 is Bare. I have to go with a bare tree:

Wintertime: you can see where the critters place their nests:

I'm also contributing to Michelle's Nature Notes (#346). This D.C. holly tree isn't bare:

A lot of birds were interested in that tree.

Ideally, I would have put this post up a couple days ago. But I didn't, and it's almost too late for Good Fences. I can't miss Good Fences #95!

After Bambi's last attack on the mountain laurels, I enhanced their fences with bits of a great big old TV antenna:

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

I always find bare trees against the sky attractive. Pretty birds and nice fences. Have a wonderful weekend!

I missed Good Fences AND Nature Notes by a couple hours.

I've got some critters, though...

Fleetwood Mac released the album 'Bare Trees' in 1972, a couple years before they hit the big time. It was their last album with Danny Kirwan, and included his instrumental track 'The sunny side of heaven'.

Like your trees, such different shapes. I read your reply as a "deranged emerald ash borer" at first! I keep watching our big ash tree, hoping it doesn't start to die.

Guess I had better get going on nature notes .... Great for the birds to have a winter hiding spot too.... Michelle
