the best photo is not always in front of you

I’m not sure where I heard that, but once I did that statement reminds me to not just look ahead, but behind and up and left and right.  And then do so again from a higher or lower level.   I love the look of this fall tree that looked very pretty in its colors looking at it straight on, but was more beautiful (to me) from directly beneath looking up.

I was very hard pressed to post a picture of a tree 🙂 – but couldn’t just give you another bird pic.  However, I did get a really nice cardinal pic – so bonus pic day!  I have a crab apple that was hit by lightening about a year ago (she’s coming down soon) so she has some interesting things going on (I also have a tree with pine beetle eggs but have decided not to show that one – fungi grosses me out less!
