Once in a while, you have a day like this one. A nice breeze, not too warm and clouds in a blue sky.
I went out with the camera, not intending to take pictures, but having it around for just in case.
I found trees that were common around here. When you have a closer look at them, they aren’t common at all. When you get used to seeing a lot of the same thing, you stop noticing it.
Bark of a maple tree.
Maple tree leaves from the same tree as the bark.
This is one of the oak trees I saw.
This is the trunk.
This is a close of the leaves.
A dwarf weeping red maple tree.
The next two pictures are of an unknown pine tree.
Three pictures of a weeping cherry tree.
Unknown tree leaves.
I heard the birds singing and watched them dart around from tree to tree.
After a time I heard low level of warning calls and looked to see what the birds were talking about.
A black cat.
This last picture is of a male Northern Cardinal that decided to have a look at me, from a safe distance.
