An Evening Walk in the Woods

I took a walk down our road this evening.

I wanted to photograph two of our wildflowers.

The orange Jewel weed was being molested by a group of hummingbirds.

They were zipping through the patch, shaking the plants and making all kinds of racket.

Periodically one would sit and rest on the nearby Pokeberry weed.

I also wanted to get some pictures of hearts-a-bustin’.

I cut across my neighbors’ property on the way home.

I found even more fungi.
