Catching the light
Not good technical quality - I can just get away with it at this size and on screen : ) However, there's just something I like about this macro shot of a small mushroom, photographed at Brown-Lowery Provincial Park on October 12th. I was surprised to find any kind of fungus growing, as mid-October is way past the end of mushroom season, which peaks in the month of August.
Was out with friends on a three-hour walk this morning, in the Sikome and Burnsmead areas of Fish Creek Park. We had 30 species of birds, which was pretty good, and one deer (plus the legs of a second deer found on the path - maybe it was Coyotes that picked the remains clean) and one little Richardson's Ground Squirrel (commonly called Gopher). Best of all was the fact that the sun was shining and the sky was blue.
