Mt Lorette Ponds, Kananaskis

Four evenings ago, on 12 August 2016, friend Dorothy phoned and asked if I'd like to go with them to Kananaskis for the day. A last minute decision - and of course I said yes! What a great day we had in the mountains, with perfect weather and so many mushrooms to keep all three of us happy. When I think how many endless rainy days we have been having the last few weeks, we were so lucky that the sun shone, the temperature was pleasant, and a slight breeze kept comfort levels just right. Our first br…

Now they can't see me

The upload problem on Flickr seems to have been solved - for now. Couldn't upload my daily three very early yesterday morning and then I was out for the whole day. Got home late afternoon/early evening and discovered that, yay, I could upload my photos. Kind of too late in the day really, but thought I would post them anyway.

Osprey take-off

Three evenings ago, friend Dorothy phoned and asked if I'd like to go with them to Kananaskis for the day. A last minute decision - and of course I said yes! What a great day we had in the mountains, with perfect weather and so many mushrooms to keep all three of us happy. The highlight for me was when we saw Strawberries and Cream fungi / Hynellum peckii, my favourite fungi (seen in the previous photo). Quite a few of them, too, which was a real treat, as we don't usually come across them. When I th…

Unidentified fungus

Posted just for ID purposes and for the record. I have seen this fungus maybe three or four times before, but I don't know what it is. Could it be Yellow Fairy Fan / Spathularia flavida, Yellow Earth Tongue? This is a telemacro shot, so the fungus is only small.

Slightly patterned

This photo is NOT my main photo for today! The previous photo, of a Sharp-tailed Grouse, is my main shot ( i.e. last photo uploaded). Flickr, stop changing how people see my images!!!
