Combining two of my favorite pastimes — foraging and photography
Here are a few shots from this morning’s aimless wandering on the Jungle Brook Trail at Malabar Farm State Park.
Emerging swamp marigolds. Soon the moist areas of the forest floor will be carpeted with these little beauties.
This female cardinal took an interest in what I was doing. I had spotted a white-breasted nuthatch building a nest and tried unsuccessfully to get photos. I’ll try another morning.
This emerging fern looked pretty cool.
The foraging part went really well too, but I’m not one to divulge trade secrets.
