Accidental skywatch

I was messing with my phone, trying to one-hand it to take a picture of something I saw on the sidewalk, when I accidentally hit the reverse cam button and I took a picture of the big oak with the hanging Spanish moss above my head! And here is the outcome. Not bad for a mistake. Linking up for Skywatch Friday.

Spiky ball of doom

The “fruit” of the southern Sweetgum tree starts off like this, then morphs into a dry spiky husk that’ll bite into your unshoed foot, if you are not careful. Whatever moron thought it was a good idea to build houses amongst both these and pine trees was, well, a moron! Linking up for Macro Monday.
