Winter Wednesday-'Tis the Season for Butterflies and Birds

As I write this, it is about 8pm here in upstate New York.  Today it has been raining most of the day (hard, at times) and right now it is - 47 degrees ?!

Not that I am complaining.  Sidewalks bare of snow and ice are just fine with me.  In fact, it is going to be quite hard to get into the swing of winter once it comes-which it will.  But it hasn't come yet.

I understand that it reached 56 degrees in Buffalo and 59 degrees in New York City.  Just a little hard to get into the holiday spirit if you are a believer in "White Christmas"  (I'm not.)

I wanted to share some "naturally inspired" Christmas tree decorations, courtesy of the Riverwalk Hotel in downtown Binghamton.  In our mild weather, you could almost see some of these creatures flying around.

A bird.....

...and another butterfly.

Seems like I've been seeing a number of naturally inspired tree decorations this year.  I'll try to share some more trees with you between tomorrow and Saturday.

Thank you to my guest photographer friend for these great shots!
