Walking through these rough woods I was not finding any Red bud trees and then I came across these. I walked back and forth through the woods to find the right place to take these photos and this, I think, is the best place to take these photos.
"And the Lord will continually guide you,
And satisfy your desire in scorched places,
And give strength to your bones;
And you will be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail."

This tree was cut down by beaver but why didn't they not eat or use the branches?
Dam built across the creek.
Cut tree stumps
Tree girdled by beaver but not finished.
"And the tempter came ans said to Him,'If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.' But He answered and said, 'It is written, Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'"

Got some maple seed photos this morning.
I thought these buds were beautiful.
"How lovely on the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who announces peace
And brings good news of happiness,
Who announces salvation,
And says to Zion, 'Your God reigns!'"

Here is a Chinquapin oak with an unusual branch that harbors a bush growing out of it.
There is a predominance of Chinquapin oak leaves below the tree that gives me the confidence to call it that.
"Jesus answered and said to him, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.'"

Here is an example of how a tree (cottonwood) seemed to have died but has sprouted again.
"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life;
he who comes to Me shall not hunger,
and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.'"

Here are a few photos of a Red Bellied woodpecker
These 2 photos show how they brace themselves against the tree with their tail feathers.
"Remember me, O Lord, in Your favor toward Your people;
Visit me with Your salvation."
