What day was the photo taken?

Entry#1: Oak Tree Stump. This very old Oak Tree died and began to lean, so had to be cut down. We decided to keep the stump to set plants and rocks on for a natural use for it as we loved the tree. Trees provide shelter and beauty and this tree stump, although decaying slowly is still doing that. It has since been used for animals and insects and the age and decay over time is showing. I have always been fascinated to see the birds animals, and insects use this tree stump and have taken pictures of the designs in the bark and parts over time. I shot this and converted to more sepia tones for a monochromatic look depicting the dead wood. The acorn cap was a plus and showed up in the photo.
- Just try to think outside of the box in contests. I find when I do I learn something new about the camera as well as nature or whatever I am assigned to shoot.
