A Closer Look

It's mid January and still no snow. Walking in the Dykeman Spring wetland offers the same bland, dreary, brown and gray panorama. But today I discovered that getting down on ground level and looking closer reveals a bit more color and interest.

Asian Bittersweet berries 
Joe Pye Weed seed husks still hang on
A tiny, delicate fungus in the woods in the wetland area
Another of those tiny fungi on the woodland floor
And this male Cardinal perched himself nearby to check out what I was up to

  1. Beautiful photos. I can't believe none of our snow has made it to you!
    Hopefully soon!
