A brief time of fresh fungi growth….but the last moments of the fallen leaf.
Few moments that I have had available to me this summer to enjoy nature and wildlife after rainfall….my moments of sanity. Enjoy each and every ticking second while able.

    Not much sanity there, that’s why I like it. Fine work, no matter the tool. Take care!

  • Thanx so much Ken! It’s nice to let sanity take off every now and then :o)

    Brilliant image Carla, I love the subtle colouring and soft textures and the ruggedness of the dark leaf imposing itself………Nature has a habit of keeping us sane………………….Leslie

  • don’t know how I miss these comments…sorry Leslie-Ann! I love leaves…almost as much as fungi. I don’t often get to juxtapose them together…and like you said….the soft with the rugged and the dark with the light just drew my eye

    Every part of nature is precious, if only people realized it. God makes nothing that is superfluous. Every plant, animal, fish and insect will have its place in the eternal worlds after death. Great capture, especially if it was with a pocket camera!

  • Saw the perfect bumper sticker today.
    ‘Ignore nature. It’ll go away.’
    Sadly…how often we do…and how much of it has…………
