Apologies! Live and learn! I went back to check the frozen “spider webs” after they had melted. Much to my amazement the under-structure of the “chandeliers” was goose down, not spider webs!
Who would have dreamed? Magic is created in the most unexpected ways!
We couldn’t have kayaked up Pomonkey Creek during the Christmas bird count. It was frozen solid. But our local Great Blue Herons didn’t want to miss the count. They were huddled together in the marsh, hiding from the frigid North wind. How many can you count?
Men have been in forests forever. And there is no escaping reminders of our presence. I won’t interfere with a surveyor’s tape but if you pick up whatever trash you can, you won’t ever see it again! You don’t need anyone but yourself to pat you on the back for removing trash. You know it’s gone. The next time you walk there, that trash won’t interfere with your enjoyment. Seeing trash that is out of my reach is very aggravating and I often spend way too much time trying to figure out a solution. But solving that kind of problem is so rewarding! Fellow pickers: keep up the good work! And Merry Christmas!
Degas would have loved these Gingko ballerinas! I mean Ginkgo ballerinas!
What could possibly happen in 15 minutes? The photos above were taken at 5 PM and 5:15 PM. Try it yourself. Take a photo of anything. Then take a photo of the same thing 15 minutes later. What has changed? Amazing! Please let me know what you chose to photograph. (Photos were taken 2/8/17)
The distance is fun but the closer it gets, the more the reflection turns into nausea.
Can you figure out what this slug is doing? Is it scratching its back or trying to get rid of a blade of grass that is stuck on its back or what?!
