I was up early enough to catch a fiery sunrise through the trees in the east.

There were Downy woodpeckers and some little warblers in the trees in the backyard today, but I had a hard time photographing them. They were high up in the trees and moved around quickly against the bright white cloudy sky. These are the best I could manage. I think this is a Pine Warbler.

I noticed that the trunk and branches of this tree form a heart shape.

Sunset was much more subdued than sunrise, just a hint of pink in the gray clouds passing behind the pine tree.
