Goldenrod is one of my favorite wildflowers. Late summer brings fields of yellow filled with predators. Among the flowers hides small sizes with big surprises and it doesn’t take long to find one. Finding a successful hunter just takes a little more time.
It must have come as a big surprise when the spider introduced itself to the bee.
Stalking turkeys is tough. There are far too many eyes in a flock to sneak up on them. The flock knew I was around. We had spotted each other at a long distance and they immediately started to move off.
Movement catches the eye. I would never have known the frog was there if it hadn’t moved.
Too late to hide from my camera now.
Nothing unexpected about finding mature puffballs on a log.
|What happens when you poke a dried puffball filled with spores?
I got lucky and got a semi-focused photo of the spores ejected. They disperse rapidly and trying to keep the camera steady in one hand while poking with the other is tough. It took a number of tries and by the time I was done there must have been millions of spores floating around.
I know there’s something else but can’t seem to put my finger on it.
Oh yea, this will be the second time I posted my spore finger.
