7 Days of Nature Photo Challenge

This challenge was done on Facebook, January 25 to 31, 2016.
Day 1
Black Birds-160110-156_0114

Title: The Birds

Date: January, 2016

A massive flock of black birds is a common wintertime phenomenon in East Texas.  It sounds and looks like scenes from Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller, The Birds.  The massiveness of the flock against the silhouette of tree branches in this photograph is a reminiscent of oriental style painting.

Title: Wallflower, Wallflower, won’t you Dance with Me

Date: May, 2015

A colossal show of privet blossoms in the end of spring is another phenomenon to enjoy around pastures and woods of East Texas.  Unlike “The Birds”, these walls of flowers are quiet, but they offer a very pleasant sweet odor, especially in the evening.
