A CLOSER LOOK

Can you guess what it is?

A closer look at the bark of a tree.....

...in Daisy Hill Forest.

On my walk through the forest, I enjoy getting a closer look at nature.

Above are new eucalyptus leaves shooting.

The grey silvery leaves of an Acacia (Wattle) Tree.

These little red flowers look like bunny rabbits.

Joey is getting a closer look at me.

  1. Hi Diane, I would never have guessed what that first picture was. Amazing... Does the bark on that tree just 'do' that---or are there critters who chew on it?????

    The Joey is just so cute. He was looking at you for sure. Looks like you had a wonderful walk.

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  10. I love taking bark close-ups. Being the only one in my family who does that, I'm thought to be strange :-), so it's great to find a kindred bark spirit. The patterns and textures are just fascinating to me. Maybe I was a squirrel in another life.... :-)
