How's this for colour?

How's this for colour?
An exciting moment two days ago, when I was with a couple of friends at the Perrenoud Wildlife Habitat Area, north west of the city. I had just been trying to photograph a teeny, orange slime mold - the kind that looks like tiny, shiny, orange "balls" on…

A little find in the forest

A little find in the forest
Three of us spent a day botanizing at the Perrenoud Wildlife Habitat Area, north west of Calgary, on 24th September. The main purpose was to search for Lichens, though I always go everywhere with an open mind (LOL!), ready to photograph anything I think…

Tree Brain and Jelly
LOL, almost sounds like an item off a fancy restaurant menu! This was such a beautiful tree branch, covered in Red Tree Brain fungus and orange jelly fungus, maybe Witch's Butter (?). It was a wonderfully colourful sight! This was taken when we went to…
