Today, on a walk with my mum, I found a couple of mushrooms! Both seem to be the same species, since they have such similar features. They look like bottle caps from above, and it was hard to get a picture of their gills without touching them. I don't really like touching mushrooms that I know nothing about, It just seems unsafe for me. I had to place my camera down on the ground to get a nice photo of this mushroom. It was worth it! I'm really glad that I got to document this smol fungi.
Stay cool, peeps!

This is a smol floof bean, or a wooly bear caterpillar. This type of floof bean is kind of common, and you can see them crawling around almost everywhere in the USA. They can eat a variety of plants, from grass to nettles, and to dandelions to violets. Their floof is not usually harmful, as it cannot inject venom, but they can cause dermatitis in some people. Be careful!
These caterpillars do not grow up to be butterflies, but they grow up to be Isabella Tiger Moths. I have seen a few of these (and one even landed on my shirt once), but until now I have not been able to identify them, and I never thought that they would be the adult versions of smol floof beans!
Here in the picture you will see I got it to crawl on a stick so that I could move it onto a safe place away from stepping feet and rolling bicycles. While moving it, it became surprised and jumped off, moving into it's defensive position, a curled up cinnamon roll. Haha! I managed to kind of gently roll it away from the path, but it was still spooked, so it stayed as a roll for quite a while.
'Til next post!

Just a little adventure of some cardinals outside my window. \_(0v0)_/
This is a dialog of this woodpecker hammering away at the tree outside my window on a snowy day. This particular species, the downy woodpecker, has been known to join or create 'mixed species flocks', where different birds join in a single flock. It would have been a wonder to see this guy hanging out with many species!
They can peck out little 'caves' in tree trunks and wood to lay their eggs in, but I'm sure he's not making one here because he's pecking such a little branch. Unless your eggs are a couple millimeters long you can't stuff them in there! XD
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the babbling of this "birb". Have a nice winter and stay warm! :)
A little story of a grasshopper I found at my new house. I hope you like it!
Challenge: In the comments section, if you can, please tell me what species of grasshopper this is, with the place you commonly see it. I found this one in Ohio. I'm really curious!
Have a nice day!

It's that season, winter holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever celebration you enjoy, winter is an awesome season! The snow... The Gabe-the-Doggos borking jingle-bells and other winter songs... The snow- wait, where's the snow!? It's here at my place, but it wasn't in this photo. Well, time to spice it up a bit! WOOOO!
Just a lot of birds I saw outside my window. Nothing much... The bird on the branch that's big and brown with pink feet is called a Morning Dove. The smaller ones are male and female House Sparrows. Hope you enjoy this slideshow of birds!
Hi! I'm Iris! I just got into nature photography like one of my brothers! I really think I could keep doing this as a hobby. :D
