This weekend we had spring-like temperatures making it hard to believe I took this photo only about a week ago. This male House Finch made for a colorful subject with the snowy white background.
During a hike I noticed this piece of bark resting on stones by the side of the trail. I was initially intrigued by the texture and patterns in the bark itself. My first thought was to get a close up of the texture but when I noticed the bark was sitting between two shadows I thought it made for an interesting forest still life.
