Dogwood Limb and Berries

This is from a limb on one of several wild dogwoods surrounding the house.  All have the white blooms (which I love) in Spring.  During this time of the year the leaves are turning from green to a rusty red.  The colors are dull and leaves spotty as well as droopy looking with how they hang.  But the fun is watching all the birds in the trees as well as chipmunks.  Even the large Pileated Woodpeckers try to balance their large size and weight on the limbs as they go after the berries.  Now that is actually entertaining as they struggle on the thin limbs.
