That's a pleasant little tableau.

Several mushrooms from several walks.

Plant identification

A small creek traverses the back of our little 8-acre country place, and I frequently walk there for exercise and just to enjoy the sights and sounds. I have gradually identified most of the usual plants that I encounter, but do not know the name or characteristics of the one shown here. Can someone help me with an ID?

KIT: 645Z with Pentax 67 100mm f 4.0 macro.

Black walnuts are ripe

Black walnuts are ripe and falling to the ground. We let them lie there because to us they are not worth the work necessary shell them out and pick out the walnut meat.

Pokeweed. Also called "poke salad" or "inkberries". Remember the song about "Poke Salad Annie"? The birds love them berries, and it may be the main reason why people don't hang their laundry in the fresh air anymore to dry. By the way, the birds will distribute the seeds all over, and you'll have a time controlling that stuff once it gets ahold.

Here's a recent contribution along the same vein:

I'm a week or so behind you to the South, meteorolgically speaking, so we've got one or two still clinging to the trees, but I've been picking them up this year, they're bigger and fatter than usual - lots of rain during the summer, I reckon. Black walnut pound cake is well worth the trouble. Ambrosia of the gods. Next best thing to po'k bah-be-queue.

Might have been better posted in the "trees" thread, though - hard to classify black walnut trees as "lichens, moss or fungus".

Thanks for both of your responses. Apologies for posting to the wrong thread, just failed to notice, was just thinking wild stuff.

Out with the XG-1. I was tired of heavy camera gear today.

The sky was overcast, I wasn't going to put up with the narrow DOF of APS_c or FF at ƒ2.8.

Great looking photos Norm. Yes, sometimes you don't wanna bother with a big rig. I picked up an old Panasonic LX3 for grab & go shots. It's not bad for an older cam.
