I've missed walking in my woods. During the summer months it's pretty miserable out there with the swarms of mosquitoes and the many ticks. We also have a lot of copperheads around here that hide so well in the leaves. I pretty much stay our of the woods during the summer and early fall months. Now that it has turned cold, I couldn't wait to take a walk and see what I could discover in my woods.
There's plenty of rotten wood where a variety of lichen grows.
I discovered this lichen growing on a leaf. I don't think I've every seen lichen on a leave before.
I never know what I'll find along the creek bank. This time it was leaves that were once under water and are now covered in sand.
It's always interesting to look for shadows in the sand.
Seed pods are my favorite thing to look for and photograph.
I'm grateful today for the woods I can wander in, for the beauty of nature I can capture and for colder weather so I can trek through those beautiful woods.
