Default Couple of FZ40 randoms

A few randoms from this past few days. The first one is a flower that bloomed on our Anderson Pear tree and the second one is a house sparrow sitting on our backyard fence.

Nice shots there. Like No.2 best for the way you have captured the horizontal and vertical lines of the fence with the sparrow.

David - Thanks for sharing your shots. Can you eat the pears from the Anderson Pear later in the year?

These trees do not actually grow the fruit. They grow the little flowers and pods but the fruit doesn't form. They are like the Bradford Pear trees which are very common in the United States, but the Andersons are much more resistant to the weather, particular ice storms and thunderstorms.

David thanks for the reply. I can relate to being resistant to the weather, particular ice storms and thunderstorms living in Ohio. Keep posting.

Those Andersons in my yard have survived bad Ice storms in 2002 and 2007, an EF1 tornado in 2009, numerous wind and hail storms including a windstorm in June of 2007 that had winds of about 95mph, and the Bradfords downtown lose branches in 60mph winds.
