Ferns on the Forest Floor

Autumn's color gets all the praise but the greens of spring are more of a welcome site. Just like fall color the splendor fades too quick as everything fills in and summer takes over.

Spring Comes to Charlton

I took my nephew fishing Saturday night and saw this scene as the late day sunlight filtered through the trees. I didn't have my camera at the time but planned to come back the next evening as the weather looked promising.

I lucked out and the light was almost a mirror image from the night before. I felt the broken old Hickory was the perfect addition to the photo. I wonder how long that Hickory stood watch over the Alplaus?
