The Welcome Umbrella

The City Daily Photo theme for February is umbrella. I've been working on a couple of photos for it. This one shows an umbrella in front of a pole that we use for hanging bird feeders. It's commonly called a shepherd's hook, although no shepherd ever carried a hook that looked like this!

Anyway, we are facing into the sun so the decoration on the pole is silhouetted through the umbrella. You can see it in normal mode in previous posts with a woodpecker or an acrobatic squirrel.
