Dapjwy, you've got to help the poor guy out. You have the Cliff Notes version of the contest, don't you?

Ok, I was wrong. It's not a dead tree, it's a snag, which is a dead tree. (my head hurts).

It is just a conceptual difference, really. A dead tree is just that. A snag is a dead tree that is full of life and a thing of wonder and beauty (to those inclined to see it that way, anyway). But you are right. Another term for snag is "dead tree."

And I will now relinquish this thread to its original purpose, avian photography.

I really wasn't trying to be snarky.

These little dudes fell out of a squirrel leaf nest where [lazy] mama laid her eggs. Great Horned owls.

They got hoisted back up into their tree in this laundry basket where mama and dad fed them along. Once they were too big for the basket I made a dog-proof fence on the ground with a couple of perches and a shelter.

They grew and grew and one day fledged and joined the owls of Nebraska. My entire village got a lesson in owls, wildlife management, and how to help wildlife without interferring.

Great shot! I *knew* there had to be a story behind that pic. Thanks for sharing.

"buteojamaicensi" ...and some say *my * screen name is hard to pronounce!
