March 8th pictures

Pictures from the woods and the river. It was nice today, but a little windy. Could barely feel it down in the woods, though.

1. Twist (and shout)

2. Moss sporophytes

5.

6. A nest!

7. Ouch.

9. Little gray buds

10. I can't believe I found this little guy!

13.

14.

15. Wicked thistles?

16.

18. Detail of one of the large ice chunks by the river. I thought this picture was kind of fun -- I didn't think it was oriented correctly when I opened the file, and now I can't remember which way it goes. So we're going to go with this.

20. More icy abstraction

21. Leaves in the little stream. They have a tendency to wash up in little formations like this.

22.

23.

24. I love the striations in the ice. They remind me of banded agates.

25. Goldenrod

26. Still more goldenrod

27.

28.

29. I have the annoying feeling that someone might have told me recently what the little growths on this tree were, but unfortunately I didn't immediately squirrel that comment away as I should have. Assuming it exists. Anyway, the red bulbous things are new to me.

  1. Another fine effort, with lots of candidates for best picture . . . all of which are left in the dust by the little gray monkey with the bongo, hanging from a branch.

  2. I think I might have been desperately in need of some photos today.
    Thank you especially for # 2 (moss sporophytes), so beautiful, and for
    # 15 (wicked thistles), which pretty much is like looking in the mirror today,
    but the grand prize has to go to # 10 (and not just because he’s neon green).
    Lovely, wonderful and so delicious … thank you, as always, for sharing your world.

    • Thank you so much. I’m glad you liked the little worm, he’s by far my favorite too — hope he’s not making a mistake by coming out of wherever he was hiding too early.

  3. I’ve been away for more than a week. Missed your walks in the woods. I particularly like your little green guy. They so often get missed unless they’re eating on someone’s prized vegetable. They deserve more intimate close-ups than they get! Lots of abstracts in there. Still loving your eye for nature in all forms.
