The Forest Floor

I was super-jazzed to capture these images last weekend. We were hiking a short but completely enchanting woodland trail; the entire path was covered in a carpet of emerald-green moss and strewn with a mosaic of fallen leaves. Some of the leaves boasted colors and textures that made them stand-alone works of art. I wish I could have recorded the sounds; a chorus of little frogs sang their wee hearts out the whole way, and at one point, we heard the repeated cries of an eagle on top of the chirps of other little birds loving life in their enchanted forest.

Having grown up on a steady diet of William Blake and Robert Louis Stevenson, I was just all excited when we spotted toadstools. Seriously. I was waiting for the elves to appear. Or not. One way or another, capturing three spiders in their webs on a single frond of dried milkweed was just as good. Enjoy!
