Recently I took the camera along to capture pictures of Indian Pipes.
I also photographed a few other woodland oddities!
Bailey loves to swim, drink and wallow in the streams and vernal pools along our local walking paths.
The water is fairly clear - the reflected tree canopy makes it look green.
I love how these birches look like they're going to braid themselves together.
A slight hint of fall to come.
Hawk featherBirds have a full agenda in the summer. They build nests, raise their young, molt and head south again. Migration is already starting for some species.
I really don't know my reptiles and amphibians. This is a pretty gray frog or toad of some sort - about 2-3 inches long.
This is a tiny toad. (Or at least that's what I think it is. It's less than an inch long.)
Remember the jack-in-the-pulpit I showed you in the spring? Look at the berries now!!
Don't be tempted to eat them!! They're poisonous!
The wet summer has produced some unusual fungus (or something).
I love these giant colorful fungi! (They're probably 8 inches in diameter or so). They remind me of corral in the Caribbean.
Bailey looks eager to explore more!
