|Hophornbeam and the moon|
The shadows on the Winterberry tree that were cast by the low late afternoon sun caught my eye. The berries are still on this tree. The Winterberry tree that lives by my own house, at Priddy Woods, has had every single berry eaten away by a flock of Robins. The Robins came in one day and ate all the dogwood berries and the Winterberry tree berries. Robins do not usually come visiting at Priddy Woods; perhaps they were migrating. I do think a few Cardinals had their share of the berries as well. I love watching the birds enjoy the berries of winter. I always ponder if birds that have red in their feathers seem to eat more red berries...hummm.
