L/Alphabe-Thursday

L is for LIMB

When the leaves or needles are gone it's easy to see how graceful some tree limbs are.

Bare limbs on dead tree

This tree has already lost  parts of many limbs but the ones that remain remind me of a graceful dancer. 

 Hanging on to a limb

I suspect this young raccoon is up tp no good. It definitely wants me to go away.
Hawk on a TV limb antenna

Could it be this hawk has mistaken this old antenna for a limb? Or is it simply addicted to reality TV?

I love leafless trees, we can see their bones.

Kathy said...

Love the first shot of the lonesome tree and of course that little coon is a cutie!

see you there! said...

Like the shot of the tree at the edge of the water. Winter is a great time to study the structure of a tree. So much is hidden when it gets dressed in its leaves.

So antennaes aren't limbs? The first shot is the one I am in love with!

RedPat said...

Cool shots. The hawk is looking for the Nature channel. ;-)

Lowell said...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is a really good post for the theme. That raccoon looks very wary of you and the hawk is wondering if you would make a good dinner!

Stephanie said...

Stark beauty on the first photos and brrrr. Love the raccoon in the tree.

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Thanks for pointing out how graceful tree limbs can be. I really like your photo of the raccoon. I agree he probably was up to no good.

That's a cold view of the lake, lovely tree though.

A lovely tree! You know I love to paint trees because of its limbs:)
Haha, the raccoon doesn't like to be spied on:)

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love your L post. Limbs is a perfect L word to share. My son just pointed out yesterday that our trees so need leaves. They look so bare.

Naperville Now said...

great L post -- especially that first shot, which is stunning.

Snowcatcher said...

That first photo is incredibly tranquil, while the raccoon and hawk pictures are lively and, with your captions, hysterical!

Esther Joy said...

Wonderful shots once again! You are so talented! I'm trying to learn to open my eyes to the beauty around me that I have neglected to see because of being preoccupied for too long with the busyness of life!
