I used to call these two trees 'The Twins'. They grow in my neighbors yard behind my house. Once upon a time the trees looked exactly alike. Now they are like day and night. And yet they still reach out to each other.
Scrubjays are a common sight in the woods here in Colorado. I see them every time I go out to the mountains. They are curious and always flitter over to see what I'm doing, but so far I've not been able to get them in close like the ones that reside at the Garden of the Gods, which are used to encountering humans on a daily basis.
I'm trying to get back into the swing of being a member of the work force again, and its harder than I thought it would be, even after just a 6 month break. I haven't had time to get out with my camera in over a week. Normally that would bother me, but quite honestly, I'm too tired to care right now.
Congratulations to Nettie for winning the ViVi Award for the Best Use of Photography category with JerseyGirl ~ Jersey Girl Journal ~ JerseyGirlJournal.com .
