A Squirrel chewing his nuts.


 I like the way this photo highlights the changing of the season. The red berries give a splash of colour but the focus is on the squirrel resting on the branch while he chews his nuts.
The word squirrel is a noun and a  phrasal verb to put (something) in a safe or secret place especially so that it can be kept for future use.



 The ripples on the surface of the water combined with the reflection from the bright blue sky and brown yellow leaves of the trees create a calm tranquil picture.
The word ripple is a noun, the ruffling of the surface of the water and an intransitive verb to flow with a slight rise and fall of sound or inflexionlaughter rippled over the audience.
