Here is a picture of a dog in a bandana. Captain was just enough of a good sport to wear it long enough for a picture.
*Someone* made a mess in his tank and then slithered right through it, and so had to go for a little swim.
Such a cool little structure to spot! And quiet enough I felt comfortable getting close enough for a good picture.
I gotta say - I can enjoy those beautiful bluebird blue skies a lot more when the air is crisp and cool!
We love spotting fungus, and shelf fungus is a fave! (And...we do not live in a wet enough climate that "Fungus Friday" is actually going to be a thing. Except for when it is, like today.) Also, it's apparently pareidolia week, but I did not notice until I was editing photos how much this looks like a grumpy toad.
I am always very drawn towards taking pictures of paths and trails and roads surrounded by nature. I have been taking a lot of joy this year in watching how familiar and loved trails change throughout the seasons.
From Merriam Webster Dictionary:
Definition of pareidolia
: the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern
The scientific explanation for some people is pareidolia, or the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness. Think of the Rorschach inkblot test.— Pamela Ferdinand
ALSO: Look at this cute log that looks like a horsey/donkey!
It's not completely accurate to say we got our first snow fall yesterday morning because we've had a few flakes flying through the air before this, but it was the first time we had any appreciable accumulation on the ground.
