Up Close and Personal with a Trillium

I have always thought the center of a trillium resembled a three legged octopus, with its swirling tentacles. I also liked how the petals of this wet trillium were almost transparent in places.

From Above

I have been posting a lot of macro shots in the past few days, but I could not resist another. This small leaf was laying in the middle of the path I walked through the woods this weekend. I like the swirl of the trees above reflected in the water trapped on it's surface.

More Mushrooms

Ack I love mushrooms! Whenever I go out with my camera on a rainy day, it is all about checking the edges of the trail for mushrooms to capture. Surprisingly this past weekend, there were not a lot. But I did spot this cluster, and I love the detail of the gills underneath that conveniently turned themselves upward to be photographed.
