We're in the depths of a north woods winter already...
but, please humor me today as I turn back the clock of time a few weeks
and picture flickering sunlight filtering down through treetop canopies
onto a patchwork bed of leaf litter.
It was among this leaf litter that I found these macro wonders.
My favorite is the first image.
This gem was painted with touches of slug slime, or some such,
which shimmered with silvery opalescence.
I hope you're enjoying the season,
whatever the weather!
