Boy in the tree

Admiring, or gaping at passing trees, shrubs and animals is my hobby! Imagine my surprise when I saw a young lad in a tree….he definitely was not nesting 🙂 It was a kikar tree……….I have purposely avoided taking pictures of his face, though he did smile and wave at us….he was in the tree to break off a few twigs for the dental hygiene of his family. Yes, the bitter twigs of several trees are used for the purpose of cleaning the teeth. Apparently the bacteria keep away, as proved by his perfect smile. History shows that twigs were used thousands of years ago for this purpose…
