melegyrn in photo_scavenger


A great number of my photographs are from nature, and I find that in nature red is a difficult color to capture with my digital camera. I have a couple of photos from yesterday that I thought might fit the bill, but went back in my archive to find something that is really red. I'll put my more recent photos under a cut.


I found a few red leaves still on the stem, though they look more orange here than they really are:

And I'm always struck by these bushes that I think are red twig dogwood--though the red color was not as pronounced in my photo as they are in reality. Oh, and for a bonus there's a red-winged blackbird in the bush...

One resolution for the new year is to do a better job at scavenging photos. So far so good! :-)

Great shots! Is that an edible mushroom or one of the fatal ones?
Thank you!

From the color, I infer it's one of the more fatal ones, but beautiful in its own way. I researched it at the time I first took the photo, but can't remember now what it's called. I thought I posted that info somewhere, but cannot find it now...
I really love the photo of the mushroom/toadstool. I can almost see the fairies dancing around it! Exactly like the one I imagine the Caterpillar sitting on in Alice in Wonderland!
You got it exactly--that's just what came to my mind when I originally saw it!
That's a wonderful toadstool - and I really like the other two as well.
The toadstool is quite something, isn't it?

Every year the red-winged blackbirds inhabit these same bushes by the shore. They're right next to a patch of cattails, which the birds quite like as perches. These are very near the bush in the photo:

Oh, love the mushroom! though I wouldn't want it on a plate.
Very smart of you--this on plate would equal a bad day! But it is nice to look at :-)
All lovely photos, but the toadstool is simply gorgeous!
Thank you!

Interesting, isn't it, that something that's so potentially lethal is still so nice to look at.
Love that mushroom!
That's just how a fairytale toadstool should look. Love the blackbird in the bushes too.
