Capture Arkansas

I woke up at 7am this morning to go outside and stand in the cold to get the best lighting for some pictures of this tree in my backyard. I'm not completely sure what type of tree it is.. It's very skinny and has these little red buds that have what almost look like eyelashes on the end of them. 

The reason for my early morning photo session, is because I'm entering a photography contest here in Arkansas and I wanted the best photos.
My grandpas the one who found the tree and told me early morning was probably the best time to take the picture. And I agree, you can even see water drops on the tree branches!
