Beauties of the Forest

beauties of the forest floor

mysterious gems that i adore


beckon to me to explore ever more

I find you cuddled in tiny moss

 wet and shiny to the eyes and touch

colors that shimmer in gentle light

texture and caps that inspire delight

an autumn flower
dressed in raindrops
there are not many flowers around
with our cold nights and not as many sunny days

  4. A wondrous collection of wild fungi from the forest floor. You have a rare gift for discovering these rare treasures, and capturing beautiful images to share with us. Beautiful close-ups.

    You should chase down a publisher, and investigate a book on these discoveries. Your posts are always that good.

    Nicely done, Tammie.

  5. Some of these forest inhabitants look like extraterrestrials (photos 1 and 3).:) I adore the natural contrast of the "thick" and bright green background!
    I'm so eager to see your next post of shared beauty, Tammie!:)

  25. Some wonderful pictures Tammie. It's mushroom season over here too. They are beautiful, but I've just recently read that the increase in people foraging for edible mushrooms has led to more poisoning.
    Wonderful to look at and photograph, but be careful out there folks, if you aren't sure, just dont.
