The Redbuds are the State tree of Oklahoma. In the past week or so, they have been really putting on a show.

More Beaver action…

I’m just amazed at the lumberjack skills of these creatures. I’d like to get a shot of one in the daytime, but they are quite shy. I think someone is coming to this site and cutting up the larger logs felled by the beavers and using it for firewood. Beavers seem to just use the smaller limbs for their homes.

This root of a fallen tree looks like it has a “Braille” message on it. Hmmm…

OK,I admit it. I’m fascinated by the work of beavers.

If you zero in on a melting icicle and examine the droplet closely, you may find another world where everything is upside down. I’ve been wanting to get a shot of this lensing effect for quite a while. I’ll try it again this spring when there are some nice flowers or something.

Tree fungus…

I have not been able to identify this particular fungus. It looks like terry cloth.

Fractals…

Fractals are geometric patterns that are repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. The branching of a tree is a pretty good example. The term was coined by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975. He developed some special mathematic models to represent these patterns. Fractals can be seen in nature in things such as snowflakes and river systems or chemical compounds. They can be quite lovely when represented in art.

This post is for you Charlie!

I smelled cookies baking and waited here a long time, hoping to get a glimpse of the Keebler Elves. Total no-show.
