A Wet Walk in the Woods (11 MAY 2015)

I had to cancel my programs for today due to the weather, but this meant that I could spend a little bit of time in the woods at Chipp-A-Waters Park. 

White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophry)

Eastern Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans)

Beetle larvae tunnels

Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) - note the five leaflets

Another photograph of Eastern Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) - note the three leaflets and hairy vines

Shelf fungi and moss

A very faded Large-flowered Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) - there is a small spider tucked in among the stamen

I bought a new wide-angle (10-22mm) camera lens this weekend. The remaining four photographs were taken with this lens.  I still need to buy a filter for this lens to reduce glare, but so far I am happy with the photos.

False Rue Anemone (Enemion biternatum) and Wild Leek (Allium tricoccum)

A wet Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum) leaf plastered to an old birch trunk

Large-flowered Trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) and Wild Leeks (Allium tricoccum)

Cinnamon Fern (Osmundastrum cinnamomeum) fronds emerging from the leaf litter
