And We Have Lift-off!

I was trying to capture this little metallic green fly on the aster,
but it launched just as the shutter released.

Also, Shaggy Mane mushrooms (Coprinus comatus)
are now fruiting profusely. Must be the recent rain.

This wee little mushroom (note how tiny by the magnification
of surrounding mosses/liverworts) was sprouting on a log in the woods.


  1. I hate it when they do that! At least you caught him in the photo. Like the Shaggy Mane.

  2. Hi Allen,
    I love nature very much.
    The pics you are loaded is very beautiful.
    Thanks for keeping us aware about our beautiful nature.

  3. Nice photos. Don't believe I have ever seen a metalic fly. Cool. I love the moss and the itty bitty mushroom. Don't believe I have ever seen one of those either. It is amazing that once you start noticing one small thing then a million others show up.
