Early October is typically the start of my search for fall colors, but this year…
Wild flowers or Lichens
The last two weeks have been spent watching the NCAA tournament, hearings, and the news, but not by choice. I got a sinus infection and flu about two weeks ago and my wife followed suit this past week. Fortunately, we ask about an anti-viral for that was prescribed after a positive test for the flu (type A) and she has a faster recovery.
Friday afternoon, I needed to go shoot something. Steven Higgs captured some nice wild flower shots last weekend, so I decided to head to Brown County. True to its name, it was brown. I did not see a single wild flower and nothing green other than last year’s ferns. I asked several people who were working, hiking, or riding in the areas and no one had seen any wild flowers. As I was returning to my car to head home, I found a log with lichens. I photographed lichens yesterday!
