60Days #306 Naked Trees
This being my first trip to North Dakota and the leaves already leaving the branches bare give me no clue as to the type of tree it is. But the sky showcases the form. Also the sky is suddenly turning cloudy and the wind feels cold. This is Wednesday, a blizzard is predicted on Saturday. We will be heading home on Friday so I will miss the snow and the cold.
A nearby tree has interesting gnarled branches and is decorated with dried shriveled berries. Anchored solidly to the branches is a wonderfully crafted nest. I appears to be made of dry grass with a bit of colored ribbon added for decoration. The nest creates beautiful texture against the branches and the sky. In size the nest is slightly larger than an American Robin nest. I have no idea what kind of bird made this nest, but it is worth a bit of research to find out who the craftsman or should that be “craftsbird” is.
These were taken on my trek to find food. Thus far my posts seem to be going backwards. At this rate we eventually will get back to where we started our adventure. Some of the best sights were on our trip back toward home. So you will be getting my adventure in a random order of events.
If I don’t pick up the pace again, my post a day will take me one year and two weeks to complete. Night before last, WordPress would not load my post. Last night I walked away after waiting a good long few minutes. When I came back it reported and error and said to resend. I did and the post zipped right on through.
Cheers to textures and speedy internet,
