About to strike the ball. He loves the “beautiful game!” So I love taking photos of him playing it 🙂

Just the Tip of the… Fungal Mass?
The mushroom is just the part we see. Underneath, in the ground, or in this case in the log, is the mycelium. Think of it as resembling the roots of a plant. When two mycelia join together, that is when their love-child sprouts up. These mushrooms seem to be reaching for the sun just like a flower, and they are similar to a flower in that they will create spores (like seeds) that produce the next generation.
So this is my little woodland bouquet – isn’t it elegant? 🙂
New Fuzzy White Buds
Can you stand another spring-themed post? Well, in my defense, it is spring! And I love spring, love the newness and the regrowth of things that seemed hopeless just a few months ago 🙂
In this shot, I also was quite taken with the hexagons of light in the background, caused by refraction through the dewdrops..
Waving at the Sunshine
In early spring the new, green leaves stretch toward the sun, fluttering their appreciation of that wonderful gift of warmth and energy. How do you show your appreciation of the sun?
Purple Kool Aid Flowers?
What is fogging up these windows? Hmm?
An early morning walk through our woods took me past this familiar old collection of junk. But today it caught my eye. The interior of the cab is glowing and the windshield appears fogged up.
Do you ever see something “in a new light” and suddenly find it photo-worthy?
I really like the sunlight glowing through the base of this flower. Bridger prefers the view that includes the top and inside of the flower.
Which do you prefer?
“What is THAT?”
The very newest are so often perfect. The rest of the world has not yet had time to impact their perfection. Yet, in its own way, the twisted, gnarled Old is also perfect. It has met the world and is still standing.
