A Walk in the Woods

So… it’s been a while since I posted anything. I’m going to go ahead and blame it on the weather. OK, and lethargy, too. But I seem to have shaken it off, and went out walking in the woods TWICE this week already.

First up was the Lloyd Center, which had a lot of interesting ‘shrooms, a couple of caterpillars, and a world of spiders.

Then today we tried a new spot: Wilbour Woods in Little Compton, R.I., which was lousy with ‘shrooms of every size and color!

Where there is water, you’re bound to find frogs – and maybe a stray sandpiper…

I love the textures in this shot.

And this is my absolute favorite photo of the day!!! I may have to enter it in a contest…

Oop! One more, taken at Nasketucket on Sunday. This sucker was humungous – and a bitch to get to. I had to kneel on branches, with thorns sticking me in the butt, to get shots of it…
