Have a good weekend everyone. Here are two miscellaneous photos from a while back.

Good afternoon Bollox. Love the black and white, once again. Was it originally b&w?

There is a tree cutter up in this Eucalyptus. They were cutting the trees near our house. He is about 150 - 200 feet up.

Thanks everyone for all the great posts, thoughts and ideas all week... sorry I am usually too swamped keeping the canoe afloat to participate as much as I would like...

I like them all but love the warbler in the bird bath. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely love the stump. Reminds me of a mind once possessed in the neighborhood. Kind of twisted and aged. Weathering brings out the beauty. Stark in the primary colors.

I really like the sepia shot of the tree stump.

Some shots from a trip to the zoo yesterday morning.

It has that Peter Jackson feel.

Oh, wait, wasn't I just looking at a b&w photo of path through trees?

This red-breasted nuthatch visited my suet feeder the other day:

This is only the third time I've ever seen one, and they have all been at our house. I heard him go "beep beep beep beep!" when I came home from work, went to the window to see if it would go to the feeders and grabbed my camera. I hope it sticks around.

Cheers all.
