L'écorce du bouleau est très belle.

Both images are like verses of a fine poem to me, Care...
Care MacADNski: My experience in the woods on Sunday was a whole sonnet.
That tree is such a beauty!
I enjoyed the banjo - I've always thought it would be such fun to play!
Care MacADNski: I love the title - Steve Martin Plays Banjo in the Woods. I was in the woods and did not come across any banjo players - but lots of birds.

Those things that walk on water. I wonder if they know what they're doing is ridiculous to humans?
Care MacADNski: Walking on snow shoes got started because of these fellows, I think. smile

What a good name for the insects. We call them water boatmen
Care MacADNski: So many differences in the expressions in our language...
A demonstration of surface tension on water
Care MacADNski: I am sure they influenced snow shoeing.

I love that birch-tree and those "skaters" are always doing a great job scooting on the surface of water.
It is always a joy to look into the water.
Care MacADNski: I always look for these and duck weed for real pond life. Next is tadpoles.

I like the way the bark is peeling off. I know that ancient people would use the bark for various purposes.
Care MacADNski: The bark of a yellow birch has a taste of mint. It is the solid information needed for identification.
YAY for striders and plain, old, rippled water...AND Steve Martin playing his banjo in the woods!
Care MacADNski: The woods is the place to be.

Great textures
Care MacADNski: The snow is finally gone!
I really like these two images Care.
Care MacADNski: I am pleased you do, Brian. I enjoyed taking them.

The water striders are funny little things; they just rely on the surface tension of the water to get around. I love the texture of the bark on the birch.

That top picture is an excellent one, with the striders and the curling bark.
Care MacADNski: I took another of that scene that I like too.
i love the fallen Birch tree and the water spiders swinging across it's reflection Care... there is nothing plain about rippled water... i love this one....petersmile
Care MacADNski: I love streams ans water. My love is the woods.
