When I see birches…

Birches are one of my favorite trees.  I have two in the back corner of my yard by the fence, under which Buddy likes to dig holes so he can go play with the neighbor’s two dogs.  A fellow photo blogger, Elizabeth, posted a picture of some birches the other day – click here .  I had commented on her post that I had just been out in the yard filling in the latest hole that Buddy dug under the trees .  As I was filling in the hole I was looking at the birch bark, thinking I needed to go back inside for my camera to capture the tree trunk.  I forgot to do that. I also said that now it is going to look like I’m copying her if I post something similar.  So, while I was out taking photos of the trunk, I was very cognizant of how I was composing the shot to make sure it was different from Elizabeth’s.  I think I succeeded.
