Pignut Hickory by grammyn

Pignut Hickory

There are two basic kinds of hickory trees, shagbark and pignut. I didn't know thiswhen l posted a photo of the nuts a few days ago but I learned the trees in my yard are pignut hickory. Here is a picture of the leaves and bark as several people were curious about the leaves especially. I like the bark for Joe Muli's texture Thursday challenge
Well, there's my "you learn something new everyday" item for today! I was only familiar with the Shagbark Hickory before this too. Good texture on that bark!

So much to learn when we take nature shots. Very cool. Like the lightning on the leaves and the bark

The trunk does have a lot of texture. The leaves look nice in the light filtering through.

The squirrels in our city park are going crazy over hickory nuts (according to a friend of mine). Now I need to find out what kind of hickory. This might stump her.

Pignut Hickory? Thanks. I learned something new. Do the Pignut Hickory nuts appeal to Grunt and Suie? On some web site I found this: β€œIn the past, Pignut Hickory nuts were commonly part of the annual diet of hogs.” you should check that out! Your little pigs could subsist for quite a while on a small supply of those nuts.

@randystreat It was hard to make the tree look interesting. I hoped the light would do that. Thank you Kathy
@linnypinny I appreciate that Lin since that was the goal with this one
@tunia be sure to let me know what you find out?
@mcsiegle I almost mentioned something about that but was short of time because I was leaving to see one of my granddaughters at a football game (she is a trainer) so I went with simple . I wil have to ask them what they think about that!
