...in a whiter shade of white pine.
Meade's right, as usual.Althouse, did you take that picture using a strobus?
What's a strobus?Meade: I was trying to guess if it was pine or fir... so it's pine? Got to change the flickr tags....
Sooty breasted robinSittin' in a tree;Neither be he sobbin',Neither feelin' gleeKeepin' half an eye cockedLookin' for a worm;Iffen belly ain't stocked,Outta business firm.
Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a tree,Up went Pussy-Cat, down went he,Down came Pussy-Cat, away Robin ran,Says little Robin Redbreast: "Catch me if you can!"~I dreaded that first robin so, But he is mastered now, and I’m accustomed to him grown,--He hurts a little, though I thought if I could only livetill that first shout got by Not all pianos in the woods Had power to mangle me… (Mother Goose and Emily Dickinson)
too bad the picture doesn't have audio. Robins have such a beautiful song.
"What's a strobus?"Latinate for Eastern White Pine is "Pinus Strobus.""Strobe" is another word for camera flash.
Oops.That should have been "Pinus strobus."Lower case "s."
Kinda lame. I can see Robins and pine at my place. I don't come to this blog for boring stuff like this.I come here for the photos of insects, flower genitalia and the insides of coffee shops and weird left wing hippie hangouts.Besides if you're going to give us a Robin shot at least one from the front with the red breast proudly on display.
