I was considering what I might post on the topic of curves for the Lens-Artists Challenge #28 and thought about some curvy frilly fungi I saw growing on a tree back in the autumn. Being me, I had to figure out what kind of fungus it was before I could blog about it! It has takenContinue reading “Curves and Frills”
I like to find the names of things. I’m not usually satisfied to title a photo ‘blue flower’ or ‘some kind of insect’. I like names. Sometimes it takes me ages to figure out what something is called, scouring various websites trying to match my plant or creature to one described. Here are some ofContinue reading “I like to give things names …”
On a walk in the woods last weekend, I found some tiny little mushrooms (and some bigger ones). It was beautiful in the woods with all the autumn colour. I must post some of the photos of the autumn trees soon. Meanwhile, the tiny mushrooms – enjoy 🙂 Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny.
The weather turned brighter today and I had another lovely walk, apart a gentle sprinkling that had me putting my camera under my coat briefly. However since there are not a huge amount of insects or flowers at this time of year, I turned to the woodland to find the small things that lurk inContinue reading “Woodland Secrets”
The frost was not so pretty today and the light was not the best so I looked for other things to photograph. I was drawn to some splashes of colour in the garden on the trees. One tree is covered in lichen – some of it a surprisingly bright green – and another tree (sadlyContinue reading “Winter colour”
The weather has improved and the storms are now over. The clear up has got underway in town, and out here all is calm and there’s even been some sunshine! It has turned a lot colder, but that is the price we pay for calmer weather I guess. Today we went out for a walkContinue reading “Sunshine”
This is a photo from that walk in my lunch break nearly two weeks back. As I mentioned, I was looking out for fungi, and spotted this cute little one growing on a log. It was nice to find one that wasn’t in a clump (so I could just focus on this one) andContinue reading “Miniature Mushroom”
Another shot from Monday. I was specifically looking out for fungi and found several different sorts. I’ve had a go at trying to identify them but I’m not getting very far. If you know what these are, please comment. It didn’t do my leg much good unfortunately – squatting down to get shots is ratherContinue reading “Busy Forest Floor”
I must find more tiny mushrooms. Lovely little things.
It seems that Autumn is definitely here. I went for a short walk in my lunch break and the woods were very autumnal. I didn’t have my camera but I got a few snaps on my phone. I spotted this big shiny beetle crawling on the ground – sadly you can’t see quite how shinyContinue reading “Autumn”
