Treeman ~ Tuesday’s With Cee ~ Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge ~

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge blog provides an opportunity to show some unusual snaps that don’t seem to fit into the other blog themes I follow.  To that end, I have decided to create for myself a Tuesday’s with Cee challenge. (This one is also in keeping with my interpretation of the WPC challenge this week.)

treemanOddball:  noun   a person or thing that is atypical, bizarre, eccentric, or nonconforming
                 adjective  whimsically free-spirited; eccentric; atypical

Crater Lake Snags ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Broken

Around the perimeter of Crater Lake are many broken and bleached timbers. Their stark bareness against the blue backdrop of the dazzling lake drew me to photograph them. Here are three favorites.

Cedar Snag ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Broken

This week’s photo challenge stumped me until I remembered the huge Cedar tree that had lived on the south side of cabin 1.  At least twenty years ago a severe winter storm snapped the trunk about ten feet up from its base.

Rabbit Nest ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Enveloped

One spring morning I discovered this rabbit nest in a dry corner of the garden, protected from rain by the eves of my house. Rabbit nestCovered by a blanket of fur, the kits were sheltered in an earthen cocoon dug into the bark mulch under ivy.

Kits in nestAfter snapping this photo, I carefully replaced the fur screen. What a cozy little hideaway!
