This pretty pair of mushrooms escapes identification by me. I thought I knew then the cap was wrong – sigh. Additions and/or corrections are always welcomed!

This photograph was taken in a hardwood forest in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA, on September 12, 2012.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
