Tear Drop

Nuthatch2018

Pictured here is a Nuthatch resting on a trunk of a tree.  This photo was taken on March 1, 2018 near my house.  It seems these birds like to tread on the trunks of trees.  I don’t know how they are able to cling to the trunks without falling.  Pretty amazing birds!

Winter Berry

Buckthorn

I believe what you’re looking at is a Buckthorn branch with its black berries.  This photo was taken on February 26, 2018 near my house.  One time I saw a robin eating these berries.  A few weeks after I took this photo, I came back to this same spot and all the berries were gone.  They were probably all eaten up!

On the Ground

This photo depicts a robin on a somewhat snowy ground.  It was taken on February 26, 2018 near my house.  This rather plump robin let me get pretty close to it so that I could take this close up shot of it.  It also remained stationary for quite some time, letting me capture multiple pictures of it.  I have to say it was a fantastic model!

Arch

This photo depicts an arched tree covered with snow.  It was taken on February 8, 2018 near my place.  I have converted the photo to black and white to enhance the lines and shape of the tree.  I think the photo looks kinda neat!
