So I love nature, mostly plants. I just love them, they are peaceful, gorgeous to look at and they move and talk to you in their own way. They grow in their own way, few hours, days or in some cases decades. Especially trees, they can become so old and stand there and watch the world go by. What a tree sees I can only wish that I get a glimpse of. Trees have watched entire colonies rise, races destroyed, standing and watching the world before Christ was born and even before that. They watch the years go by standing in that same spot. It's mystifying.
Anyways, the trees that are in the photos below are probably not more then 50 years old probably as Popular trees grow quick and can get large. Well here are some of the photographs that I took. I was trying out that "bokeh" technique with focusing on the object and blurring out the background.
I believe that this was a Red Oak tree.
this is the Dogwood, my state tree and flower. It is a great tree, doesn't get big but it blooms great looking flowers with white pedals.
The great tulip Poplar tree, it is a softer hardwood tree. It also flowers and they look like tulips, that's why it is a tulip tree :)
Holly trees, there are many scattered through out my woods still adding green even in the winter.
I am specifically focusing on this little bug on the tree that is colored just like the bark.
