I've been having a really hard time staying inside lately. Even as I'm typing this now I'm chomping at the bit to hop in my car, take a drive and find somewhere to get out and explore. Fall is my favorite time of the year to be outside, not only because of the perfect temperatures but because there is always so much to find! Here are some things that have caught my eye on my recent adventures...

Can I just point out that that is not selective black and white editing on that third picture. I would never do that, I promise! Haha!

  4. Fall seems to bring so many people outdoors after being stuffed up inside the house during the too warm summer months. Fall also has better critters to photograph... Love yours!

  10. I'm amazed by the amount of creatures you always seem to find on your adventures.
    I find it interesting that we both posted today about similar topics, these treasures found in nature. I especially love that picture of the little mushrooms on the ground. Lovely!

  11. I love all of the moments that you captured with your camera. It's fun to try and spot all of the mushrooms hiding in the forest. I thought it would be neat to make a gif of a set of pictures that was taken once a day to document the rise and fall of a mushroom. Have you ever tried growing them? I used to do that and there was such a sense of accomplishment being able to pick them homegrown.
