Birds and Trees

I’m nearly two months behind on sharing these photos so the trees are now completely clad in leaves. How quickly things can change in so little time.


A cool breeze blows over me
It’s a breath of fresh air to know You’re there
As the birds chitter-chatter this lovely Spring day
I’m sure they’re speaking about Your grace.

It’s near impossible for me to get images of birds. I just can’t get close enough. I tried to take a photo of a crow one day. When I aimed my camera at him (or her) it reacted as if I had a gun in my hand, immediately taking to the sky and landing on our neighbors roof. Can you see my sweet little friends in these photos?

There were several little birds bouncing around the branches of this tree. They didn’t seem to mind me standing below them attempting to capture an image. However, I think they almost enjoyed making it difficult for me, as they quickly shifted positions. All things considered I’m pleased with this shot. Even if the fellow in front managed to hide behind a limb. It just proves that they were purposely giving me a hard time. I can still see you, you know.

There are no birds in the photo above. So don’t go searching to pinpoint where Waldo is (or Wally if you’re from the UK) It’s not one of those kind of photos. I just have an obsession with trees and foliage and thought that the new shoots on this beauty were lovely.

This one is much like the photo above: more tree love. Look at the bark! Better bark than bite, right? You don’t have to thank me for giving you a squirrels eye view. If being a bit squirrely keeps me sane, then I’m going for it.

“For there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease. Though its root grow old in the earth, and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put out branches like a young plant.

Job 14:7-9(ESV)

“That is, if it be cut down to the root, and only the stump of the root is left in the ground, as the tree in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Daniel 4:15, yet the owner of it may entertain a hope that it is not utterly destroyed, but will bud out again; or “change” its state and condition, and become flourishing again: or “renew” itself; and its strength, and put out new shoots and branches; either it will rise up into a new body, as the laurel, as Pliny relates, or produce new sprouts as the willow, alder tree, and others; for this is not true of every tree, though it may be of many; for it is reported of the cypress tree, when cut down, it never sprouts out any more…”

Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible

“Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches.”

Psalm 104:12 (ESV)

    1. It’s so needed and necessary! I need to soak it all in to revive my withering Winter heart and grow some new shoots. I will. I will grow some new shoots by the grace of God! 😃

    1. Hehe. Yes, I remembered a post I did on my other blog about penguins. I called it “Where’s Waddles” Someone from Australia commented that it reminded them of “Where’s Wally.” I was totally going for that, but I didn’t have a clue that “Where’s Waldo” here in North America was different in Australia and the UK. So, yes, I didn’t want to confuse anyone. 😊


  1. I love taking Pictures of nature also. I usually take too many pictures of the sunset, sunrise, deer we see in our yard, flowers etc. thanks for sharing the lovely pictures. I love the little bird you got. And most of all I love being outside to fellowship with the Lord! ✝️

    1. I never get tired of photos of sunsets or sunrises or any beautiful thing that the Lord has created so it’s all good! Being outside fellowshipping with the Lord is a special time forsure. I’m always eager to get my bistro set set up in the Spring so I can read outside.


  2. This is beautiful! I have always loved trees. I read a book and one part mentioned looking up at the sky and seeing the breaks amongst tree and sky. The choice of scripture was so well-fitting. 🙂 Blessings!


  3. Ahh this is cute with the bird entertainment! You’re right they’re hard to capture a photo of, we get some pretty ones outback but by the time I go to grab my camera they’re gone!! Love that you’re enjoying nature!!
