  1. Good Morning,
    I came to join in the fun and find that the thread has yet to be started. Time to wake up! Get your coffee, make that tea, pour some grog of some kind and smell the nature...................mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........smells good.

    The hands of Xylaria hypoxylon reach from buried wood, looking like something from "The Mummy". What else is creeping around in the woods? Could be anything when it's Monday in Natue. Where's that popcorn?

  3. Here is a hand of a different sort - attached to a peeper on a sensitive fern frond from a few nights ago

    This racoon has been creeping around our back deck hoping to raid the bird feeders. Love your photo Laura!

    Peeking up the cap of a mushroom ... voyeurism?
  6. Thanks Gordon. There was another "hand" nearby, but not close enough to be effective. Nice raccoon. We have many here but since we don't have feeders they stay in the woods. One may have been up in the cherry tree recently.......something left a pretty big cherry packed pile near the shed.

    Laura, glad to see you starting the thread today. For a moment I thought that "hand" was pretty scary.
  11. Thanks for starting the thread, Laura. Nice photo, surprising (which is always good).

  12. Thanks again Laura
    Great shots today. This is from a couple of weeks ago when the weather was mild. Sunset at the preserve.jpg
  13. Wow quite some photos! MIN is ever getting better. Can't go around commenting on everyone but, Laura. glad to see you starting the thread as in old times. And that's quite a creepy hand with one missing finger. Did it move? Eek! :eek:
