Jez’s Reflections #3 and WWE #76

All of the photographs on this post were taken on a foggy February morning in the year 2020. Recently re-discovered, I felt certain that they’d make a good show for Jez Braithwaite’s Reflections and Water Water Everywhere challenges.

Becky’s Bright Square Challenge – April 26, 2021

Becky of Winchester hosts the April Bright Squares challenge.

This square is dedicated to Jez Braithwaite, the master of crystal ball photography!
I can’t identify these interesting white blossoms, but I thought they were perfect for today’s bright squares.

This is just one of a whole series of photographs that I took yesterday at one of my favorite haunts, Weems Creek. I didn’t even know about the new challenge, Reflections, or that it was incorporated into the Water Water Everywhere Challenge, both hosted by Jez Braithwaite who is a great photographer.

Jez’s Fan of… Challenge #103

I’m a big fan of early lifeforms such as mosses and lichens (pronounced liken.)

Let’s take a closer look. Mosses, much like plankton (the earliest form of plant life) are highly dependent on an immediate supply of water.

Here we have some pretty pink buds alongside another, hardier moss.

Next we have lichens which are a beautiful example of symbiosis between algae (or cyanobacteria) living among filaments of multiple fungi species. Lichens have properties different from those of their component organisms. Wikipedia
