One of the neatest things I ever stumbled across in Bent Tree was back in 2012. I was walking the Beaver Run Trail one dark morning and saw a weird yellow-green glowing in the distance. I kept heading towards the glow and came across a patch of bioluminescent fungi…foxfire. The photos above and below show two of the glowing fungi, but the photos don’t come close to capturing how amazing it looked in person. Click the photo below to zoom:
The Georgia DNR released a graph (see below) showing the results of the oak mast surveys from 1985 to 2014. Last year’s acorn production rating was the lowest during the 30 year period, and this year’s is the second highest (second only to 1988). Click here for last year’s related 11/14/2013 post. The acorn photo above was taken a month ago, shortly after a rain. There was an abundance of sprouting acorns.
The photo below was taken earlier this month, of the reflection of trees and leaves in Lake Tamarack. Click the photo twice to zoom in. The panoramic photo above was taken late yesterday afternoon.
While going through pictures, yesterday, I came across some neat ones taken in 2012. I was hiking along the Beaver Run Trail on a summer morning, and noticed several luminescent fungi along the trail. To zoom in, click on a photo twice.
