Forest Floor, Central Alaska

The ground under the black spruce trees is visually very rich with great colors.

 

The upper layer here is nearly a foot (30cm) thick, made up of mosses, mostly. In this sample is a birch leaf, cones from black spruce, lots of other fallen debris and some yellow spikes that I cannot identify. The spikes look almost like worms but they are some sort of plant, perhaps a fungus of some variety.
