Photo of the Day......Wind Blown Cottonwood Tree in Southwest Kansas
I must apologize for the bird identification error in the 10 Sept. 2011 posting. The bird is a Western Meadowlark and not a Northern Flicker. I'll check some bird resources next time.
With that said, I am posting a photo of a wind blown Cottonwood tree in South Western Kansas on 1 July 2011. Like so many trees on the prairie it seems you can set your direction by which way the tree branches are blown. If the tree is leaning to your left you must be facing south. If it leans to the right your looking north. If the tree is leaning towards you your facing west. If it leans away from you your looking east.
