Dogwood Berries for the Birds
Red Osier Dogwood Berries for the Winter Birds - early morning sunlight on overnight snow
Flocks of migratory birds passed through here earlier this fall, stripping most of the wild fruit from the trees and bushes. However, some bird species stay here all year long, feeding on what is left on the trees, like these berries of the Red Osier Dogwood bush. Before the winter is over, even these bird-raisins will be eaten, and the birds will be foraging in some other trees.
This one, for me, is more interesting in the background -- to the NE quadrant. It seems like a ghostly mirror image of the actual subject berries. hmmmmmm
Hard to believe you already have snow. Although, I guess you do live in CANADA. ;)
This time of year, the snow comes and goes, and it's very exciting to see how things look as the white stuff changes the way things appear.
In the photo, I love how the shallow depth of field emphasizes some parts of the tree and makes soft images of the rest. Soft and ghostly, and suggestive. Thanks for letting me know what you are seeing!
Inkblots by Nature. LOL
