What The Hell Is Coming Out Of The Centre Of This Tree?!?

There's a skull-like face, with big hollow, black eyes. It seems to be extending an arm out and pointing out into the forest. The shadows cast upon this tree also look like figures dancing on the bark. These visions quickly disappear the closer one gets to the tree, but from afar, the imagination runs wild! … Continue reading What The Hell Is Coming Out Of The Centre Of This Tree?!?

We’ve Got Pitcher Plants Here?

Imagine that these are only about 2cm long... when I tilted it, liquid poured out. I couldn't see inside with my naked eyes, but these look a lot like carnivorous pitcher plants. Regardless, they are stunningly beautiful. Not exactly yellow, but more an orange-hued ochre. They grow out of a solid and proud looking stem, … Continue reading We’ve Got Pitcher Plants Here?

Unusual Green

My camera was picking up the green tint of the sunlight pushing through the canopy. It coloured everything green. Regardless of the filter, I played with, I couldn't render the grayscales of these mushrooms. So, I'll leave them with their toxic-radiation-green hue. I wonder if they glow in the moonlight too???  Prints & more available … Continue reading Unusual Green

Surrounded By Life

I went for a short walk around the garden as a break from my reading and my mind was open to seeing. I noticed these goldenrod weeds and wondered if they would look more magical up-close. To my surprise, they were full of bees of all sizes and shapes... It made me realize that nature … Continue reading Surrounded By Life

Photobomb

The wind was gentle and moved these tiny flowers softly into the frame of my shot; making it look like the flowers were photobombing the shot. I can almost hear them giggling at their successful prank. Prints & more available at Arts MPerron @ https://1-mario-perron.pixels.com

Peek-a-boo

What's hiding in the shadowy hole of this dead tree? Could it be the woodpecker that bored the holes we see all over its body? Maybe. I only glimpsed the movement of the shadow out of the corner of my eye. It remained still while I looked straight at it. Prints & more available at … Continue reading Peek-a-boo

New Arrival to Death

Take a moment and observe all the colours and textures of this composition. Mother Nature painted this. She filed it with reminders of the wonderful life all around us. She reminds us to stop and take a moment. This leaf with it's mottled green and yellow surface drew me in and I'm so glad it … Continue reading New Arrival to Death

Looks good enough to eat…

These looked soft and fragrant, like oyster mushrooms. I really need to take a course on edible mushrooms! Maybe I was getting hungry when I saw these, maybe it was just my mind transitioning from thinking ahead to being present in the moment... the hunger left and I started hearing and seeing the forest around … Continue reading Looks good enough to eat…

Edible, Magic, or Poisonous?

I really need to take a course on foraging and mushrooms. The forest is packed with life and I feel I know nothing about most of it. Arg!!! There's just so much to learn. Amazingly, even though I notice so many things and really love noticing them, I get anxious at not knowing more about … Continue reading Edible, Magic, or Poisonous?
