I have been trying to keep my digital photos to the weekends, but was spinning my wheels with paint today (trying to get some other work done, and got a little frustrated). So, outside I went with my camera (phone).
I walked into the woods down to the pond, where several ducks and a few geese were sitting on a fallen tree trunk, standing on the ice, swimming in the open water, and discussing the latest news amongst themselves. I took a couple of photos of them, but the crunching of dry leaves under my feet urged them to retreat too far away to be very interesting given my lens.
On the path back to the house, though, some very cool fungi on a birch log revealed itself. I took several close-up photos, and then further zoomed in on the computer. This image was the winner today.
