The hot Summer has passed and I have just started hiking up the hillside of the nearby hills.
Walking up the hillside, I discovered this tree stump with some bright color fungus.
I have never seen them before and was glad to have captured them with my smart phone.
Woke up this morning, I was wondering whether I should be making my morning hike as there were some thunder storms during the night.
The treks will be soggy and maybe even slippery.
We have the wettest April in 60 years and I have not been able to hike for worrying that the paths are too slippery.
The sun has come out and I decided to take a chance.
A little red crab was blocking my way. I was quite puzzled as I have never seen them before at this hillside location.
Then continuing on, deeper into the forest was this tree which still has some red maple leaves at this time of the year.
Then I stumbled on some fungi or mushrooms on a tree stump. I know some of them are poisonous.
It looks rather abstract, with some fungi attaching to it.
I was thinking of the theme for this week’s Photo Challenge – Abstract – does it look abstract.
I wish I had taken a proper camera with me.
Anyway, please enjoy the pictures – as much as I have enjoyed my early morning walk.
