Sunday Picture Post: Reflections on a Woodland Walk

I interrupt the Fungi Fest, for this week only, to bring you this… cos it was amazing.

Yes folks, it’s upside down…

I went in search of pine trees, for their specific fungi. But the woodland is mixed with deciduous.

Calm yet… we haven’t fully entered the woods…

And on this one DRY and SUNNY day…

Feast your eyes on that colour

the Mother Beech came out to play!

And look at that incredibly tangled ancient trunk…

I just had to share these photos… But I’m not done yet

Late for a dragonfly, this Darter’s colour is in keeping with the day

And, because I don’t want you getting fungi-withdrawals…

Just like apricots tucked in amongst the bracken.Β 

Possibly Powdercaps, but they could as easily be the golden version of Fly Agaric, depends on what colour those stipes. Then again, they might be waxcaps… except the cap don’t look waxy. Ho-hum.

    The colors are indeed a feast…..that golden yellow light and dark trunks and branches make such a beautiful contrast. So beautiful but I must settled for the rustling palms though not as seasonal. Yet the snowbirds leave their crimson and yellow trees to come down here.

    What a wonderful walk that must have been! I’m intrigued by the trees That “Tangled ancient” one is amazing. I agree that the colours of the trees are just as vibrant as the one’s I see here in Toronto. But we’ve lost ours now for snow. Thank you for sharing your photos πŸ™‚

    • I thank you. Difficult to know which ones to include. I came home with 200, but some of those were of the river, and others of fungi

        Your choices seem to suggest you have a treasure trove of beautiful pictures all ready to be shared. ☺️ I especially loved those old tree trunks and their golden foliage.

      • Those twisted trunks belong to a beech. And I have never seen them looking like that. Though beech and birch are our most colourful trees this time of year.
        And yea, I do have a treasure trove, and added to almost weekly. Well, they’ll last the winter months when I mightn’t be able to get out.

    What a beautiful and brilliant post!
    That upside-down image is breathtaking… and that beech… holy moly. What a crazy-wild trunk and that “head of leaves hair”… stunning.

    What a treat you have given us this morning.
