Woods from the Edge of the Road 4

This may be the thorniest osage orange tree I’ve ever seen.
Update later in the day: Botanist husband David says the reason this is the thorniest osage orange tree I’ve even seen is that it is not an osage orange tree but a honey locust (Gleditsia triacanthos).
I love the complexity of this series, Linda. And the overcast lighting is perfect for the subjects.

Yes, the photos are complex, and looked more complex on download than the scene did to me in person. I wondered if any of the excitement I felt while taking the photos would come through. So thank you thank you for getting them, Ken.

What would you do without him? 😉 What I like about the series is also all the detail and complexity, and I’m sure Ken is totally right about the overcast conditions – in sunlight it wouldn’t work like this at all.

Oh, goody. A reason to tolerate—maybe even like—overcast skies. Yes, and what would I do without you? 😉 Thanks, Lynn.
