January 4

This branch against sky theme is one I've been working on for a few months now, usually with valley oak branches.  I'm actually not sure what kind of tree this is; I was thinking it's some sort of magnolia, but I'm not sure if they even lose their leaves in the winter here.  Whatever the tree, I'm satisfied with the lacey look these little branches give.  I was hoping the little bird would turn around but she never did.  At least she gave me an over the shoulder look that shows her beak.

The branches make really cool shapes around the photo and the bird is in just the right place.
