Mushrooms and Lichen

Another macro taken with my new lens that I mentioned in yesterdays post. I was out in the woods looking for mushrooms, and there were surprisingly few to photograph. I think it has over-rained, and needed a warm day to help them come up. It was unusually warm on Sunday when I was out, so Monday was probably a different story when it came to finding mushrooms.

Since there are no flowers in my area right now, I will be submitting mushrooms to the "flower" memes and bloghops I participate in. I hope no one minds. They are the closest thing I can find at this time of year, and in my opinion, sometimes are just as beautiful!

Evergreen Water Beads

I won a new macro lens off eBay a few weeks ago and finally received it. So I went out this past weekend and tried it out for the first time. I am fairly happy with the results. Anything that helps me bring out the delicate details of nature that are often overlooked is a bonus in my book!

Quiet Path

It doesn't appear as though this path is walked very often, with the leaves fairly fresh and untrampled on the ground.

Autumn Wonderland

I was walking through the thick evergreen woods and came across this open area of maples, which was like stepping into another world.
