The Chestnut and Copper Bush

I am endlessly fascinated with this bush as it changes beautifully from one season to another. This day as I passed, I found fallen autumn leaves caught in its branches.

When you first look at a pelican, no matter how many you have seen, the first thing that you notice is their weird, uncanny beak. But equally impressive are their huge, powerful wings. (See the second photo above.)  An adult American White Pelican weighs 14 lbs, but has a wing span of 9 Feet. They are one of the largest North American birds.
