I was rained out today but took these under the trees.

I see an inverted J on the stem of the leaf and lots of T's in the mushrooms. Beautiful shot.

Philby, missed the photo. Will try again later since it appears to be from your computer.

Aloha
OOPS now I see it. Very nicely done! Al Cal noted lots of T's. Those critters look good enough to eat.

Really nice shot. In addition to the letters already mentioned, I see an F formed by the tallest mushroom on the right and the one behind it and numerous V's and Y's formed by the conjunctions of the stems....an E on the out-of-focus leaf in the background...and I suspect many more letters could be found with a close analysis of the rotting patterns on the log.

I see a penguin trying to be a woodpecker, myself. Or an 'r', if you like.

(Been stalking our local woodpecker lately. In our garden yesterday, and across the road occasionally. So it's on my mind)

Odd you should mention that. Not thirty minutes after I read your post, I was out in my backyard, heard a cry that was new to me, looked up and saw a pair of pileated woodpeckers on a power pole behind our yard....the first time I have seen one of the large species of woodpeckers in or near my yard. I shot them there, then stalked them for about 45 minutes. Haven't had a chance to review my shots, and I suspect they were all too distant, although I had a 400mm mounted.

Isn't that the species of woodpecker that was thought to be extinct until about a year ago someone reported seeing one. If this is truly the case, you should notify fish & game or whatever agency tracks such things. If you got a photo, I think they would be interested in seeing it.
