Wordless Wednesday: Wonder Up Yonder

This week’s Thematic Photographic 36 - is Up – another perspective challenge - photos taken of things up above and towards the sky. This is another popular perspective for me because of trees and animals that live in them. Here are a few samples.

A very large bowl-shaped bird nest, species unknown
Unidentified tree from Forest Park (St. Louis)
A tree from my backyard (Ash, I think)
Bird Nest made with trash (I love the color of the sky in this picture)
Tree with several hollows made by Woodpeckers

Wow! Even birds understand "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". Why's it so hard to get that through to the higher end of the food chain?

Nests always intrigue me! And it is the perfect time of year to spot them!

I've always been fascinating by the homes of other animals, especially birds. These great photos!

I see nests made of trash often. If I didn't know any better I would think that all nests were made with trash. I think I've been in the city too long.

Great photo spread you have there.

How clever of the birds. I believe they know what's recycling all about using part of trash to build their nest! :P
