The light has been really interesting lately. We’ve had lots of dense fog during the night and mornings, with the sun eventually breaking through sometime early afternoon.
Yesterday I took this photo just as the fog was beginning to take over the brief three hours of sunlight we’ve been having in the afternoons. It makes for some interesting ambiance.
I’m enjoying whatever sunlight we get right now, because very soon the rainy season will come to us with great vigor and the sun will be a longed-for presence.
It’s been awhile since I provided a photo of how this year’s fawns are doing. This is another set of fawns who’ve been hoping for handouts. As you can see, the reddish summer coat has been replaced by a dense, fuzzy brown/gray coat that sheds rain nicely. These two were nosing around the dead leaves under the birdfeeder, hoping for stray black sunflower seeds.
Since it has rained not long ago, and since the fog keeps the wild flora fairly damp these days, there has been a profusion of mosses, lichens, and mushrooms. It seems like there is a forest of them in just a 6-inch square. I took this macro photo of these funny shaped cones, reaching up vertically. It’s amazing to think how much life exists in just such a small space – like a world within the larger one.
