"Picture This" Photo Contest
The folks at Gardening Gone Wild have their monthly photo contest going. This time the theme is "Down on Your Knees", a great theme in order to challenge us to go at our garden photography from a different angle. David Perry is the judge this time and if you've never seen his blog, you really must. It's inspiring and many times educational.
I almost didn't enter this contest after I looked at a few of the entries. Besides some great garden blogger entries, there's now photography blogger entries, so my entry is going to pale in comparison. But I thought it worth putting this photo up anyway because I'd love to know the variety of mushroom (seems I always have to label things). Anyone know?
We've had some rain recently and these little beauties are starting to pop up here and there. To get this shot I borrowed a tip I learned from Saxon Holt - lay out a yoga mat and lie down. I risked chiggers and even more mosquito bites than I already have but I found it was quite fun hanging out at that level!
