Nice! Do the branches brown out at the same speed the trees do?

The cut branches are eucalyptus close to what they use in floral arrangements so they hold their color well , I also stick some of the stocks into the water and they last even longer and finally if it warms up and they start fading to fast we simply add more as soon as it rains that helps a lot . I will post a pic of last years blind and you can see how it blends.

This is my big water blind
There are many small brushy islands on the lake it sits on and the birds will work right into them.
Pic one is a view from the shooting box into the boat port .
Pic two is the blind with no brush , you can see the 365 lb anchors under it .
Pic three is the way it looks on the water.
