Details, details

There's not a lot of sweeping vistas hiking around the woods of eastern Tennessee... But there's certainly a lot of interesting stuff to look at, when you pay attention to details:

This pine cone was one of 3 on a bare twig, all were missing significant chunks. Were they eaten by birds, now scattering the seeds?? Or were they shed? I don't know, I'm no botinist.....

I'm always struck by the mottled designs on tree branches and trunks, but seldom seem to capture thme to suit my vision. This comes close... A couple of parallel trunks of small trees, each with its own character.
