This minimal image shows the tops of what are called Snag Trees or dead standing trees. Seen at the Muskoka Wildlife Centre, they are described as follows: "These trees can be used by insects, amphibians, mammals and birds for feeding, nesting and hibernating."

thanks c – I never knew what these trees were called. I love to learn about new things like this.
Very strong and creative image. I like it – it is very peaceful to look at.
thanks meanderer – trees are such great models, even if they are “dead.”
Almost looks like Chinese character artwork!

A wonderful, strong silhouette! 🙂

That’s beautiful minimalism! I love the blue!
thank you mimo – I knew when I looked up at these dead trees that there was something special there… a lot of critters call them home.
Very interesting 🙂
thanks Charlie… who knew dead trees had such value? 🙂
Could be a cartoon-esque image… all you need is the little “twitter” birdie on the top branch 🙂
