Day 103

Another photo to add to my series of "Left Behind".  We have the most amazing Magpies in our yard all the time, along with a covey of Quail who live under our shed.  Once in awhile a bluejay will venture over, but never stays long.  The other day I found his stash.  A peanut from our neighbors feeder and a marble that the magpie must have left behind.   Truly unique "Treasures from the Garden". 
I used a beautiful soft layer of texture I created last week for this image because it was rather boring with all the little pea-gravel bits, twigs and muddy browns & grays.

nice composition. I like the drawn lines and the peanut shell!
