Thanks Gene and Evy! We have manzanita trees on our property, and this is one of them. The bark curls and peels like this in the summer. The hard part was finding a flat enough spot and using a small enough aperture to keep everything in reasonable focus.

Thank you one and all! This photo also made "Best of Show" at the local Shasta District Fair--so it will be competing at the California State Fair next month as well. Pretty good for a photo taken in our yard! :-)
