I was out at the crack of dawn this morning and was hoping the weather would clear enough for some video. I carried a couple of lenses and the tripod for miles and miles and the mist never lifted. I did get some sound of a young buzzard shouting for it’s breakfast but it was hidden in the fog.
I call this a pond but I have yet to see any water in it. I visit every few days as it looks as if it should be teaming with dragonflies, newts and frogs. I have never seen anything but I live in hope that my luck will change. It is far too wet to walk across even with wellies.
The Blusher; Amanita rubescens.
I was about ready to write today off, I couldn’t find any squirrels and yesterday when I only had a 100mm lens the little red devils were hopping about all over the place. I was within half a mile of the camper when I found this wonderful stuff. I got a quick picture then headed back for the macro gear and a plastic tub.
Dog’s Vomit, Scrambled Egg, Fuligo septica. I have collected a bit and have it on a piece of wet paper on a plate, I’ve offered it some porridge for lunch and if it get’s moving I’ll take some timelapse of it. Brace yourselves for DOG VOMIT the MOVIE.
That’s all for today, enjoy your week.
