Heinrich, you have quite an eye for taking these ordinary and possibly mundane plants and producing unusual and attractive images to say the least. That first shot of the "Single Delight" is truly a beautiful image. If I had any more adjectives I would write another paragraph just on that shot. Thanks for showing me how it should be done.

Edit - I can see walking through those same woods, stepping on your subjects, and emerging later to say I couldn't find anything to shoot.

Hi Lee and thank you for the undeserved praise. It is quite simple, sometimes one walks with ones eyes towards the sky and at other times it's easier to keep ones head pointed toward the ground.

Take care,

Great, great shots! I like the Cladonia species, as well as the Moneses. We had the last one in two locations, but it became extinct in our country....
Thanks for showing!!
