Sycamore Tree

Sharing a photo of my Sycamore tree in the backyard. I was on the deck looking over the privacy fence right before sunset and noticed the top half of the sycamore looked striking against the sky. Or at least in my mind it did. So I snapped some photos just as two blackbirds were flying away.

Sycamores also go by the names buttonwood or buttonball trees. This comes from the 1-inch balls that hang from the tree all winter and fall to the ground in spring. I love bark on the tree. It has a camouflage pattern and peels off in patches to reveal the light gray or white wood beneath. Older trees often have solid, light gray trunks.

I will post more photos later of the entire tree.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
