Paper Birch

Paper Birch, Betula papyrifera, is also known as White or Canoe Birch.

I found this piece of bark near the shore at the back of the lake. It had already been through at least one winter on the ground. Then it went through weeks of alternating cold and blasting heat on the floor of my car. After all that, it's still quite pliable!
