Birchbark

This bit of birchbark had been shredded from the tree.

I love the way it catches the light in different angles.

I really like these pictures of the shredding bark on the birch. I think Birch trees are very photogenic.

My favorite tree next to the maple!

Like silk hanging from the tree, absolutely gorgeous. Nature is so intriguing, marvellous pictures. Many trees shed their bark here, some come off in great thick wads to line a basket or in slivers which leaves the bark underneath new and smooth in beautiful colours. When I grew up we had a very tall birch tree in the garden. I loved everything about this tree perhaps, because there was a swing hanging on a branch!

Birch is my favourite tree - its bark!

Birch bark has so many interesting textures. I love the first photo with the hint of green in the background.

Absolutely beautiful! I love the way the light shines through the paper thin shreds. We have some very old birch trees here and I love the way the bark shreds and curls.
