Whoa There Big Fellow
I was ... um ... 'greeted' by this guy the other day. He was very clear - these trees are occupied. His family has taken up residence, so I need to just back off and give them some space. Message received loud and clear. #hummingbird

Straight and Narrow
Jousting Trees are a special breed, selectively grown since the Middle Ages. Known for their exceptional taper, feather weight and almost unnatural straightness, having one of these could mean the difference between life and death. Related to the Wand Tree, which when harvested as saplings make the perfect wands, are both are from the Magic branch family. Very rare.

It's Complicated
Starts out simple enough, but then there are these little twists and turns, and before you know it, you're deep into it. Just like the depth of field in this shot. An f3.5 iris traced a fine line of focus through and around this bit of complicated rusty landscape.

Mixed Bag
When you're the only one around you gotta please a lot of tastes. At least that's what they told this guy. So he's invited a couple other blooms to be part of him. And voilà something for every palette.

Pot of Gold
No surprise that this double rainbow ended in my Vermont woods. That's where I kept my gold back then. Hope you have a double lucky Sunday.
