I've posted other pix of the tree on the left. I love to watch it tossing in the wind, against that sky. (This pic of it, "Stand by Me" [8-10-16 007v2] is very new and just fixed up a bit today. Didn't do a whole lot to it: cropping, color saturation, and a little diffusing and sharpening.) I was playing my didjeridu by the pool and looked up. Well, down went the didj and out came the camera. What's more interesting is that I recalled that a didj is traditionally made from the branch of a eucalyptus tree ... which is what I'm told that tree is. Smile. (However, my didj is made from the stem of a Sonoran Desert agave plant. I once had a eucalyptus didj. It weighed a ton and didn't have anywhere near as wonderful a tone as my agave one. Though I hasten to add that I've owned several didj's over the years, made from things as different as PVC pipe, glass, and bamboo, and each has had its unique tone and quirks.)
