“Colourful Hen’s Tail”

“The forest has so many beautiful gifts to share. Seemingly simple things, like fungi can be wonderful when we take the time to appreciate them.” – Ed Lehming

As the snow has melted away, some of last year’s buried treasure has emerged and I’m constantly amazed at the things I have missed. Having walked this particular trail dozens of times in the autumn, somehow I missed this colourful Hen’s Tail right next to the trail. Usually I have an eye for seeing anything different but I don’t recall this.

The fungus, which is mostly found on fallen trees has been here for a while, judging by the green mildew on part of it, yet much of it is surprisingly fresh looking, bringing a lovely splash of colour to the image. It seemed like a natural iPhone composition.

Today, I will return to this section of forest again to check on the progress of the Hepatica patches that I discovered the same day that I made this image. With a few mild days, I’m sure things have changed again.
