I walked out the driveway to the mailbox last evening and I took my camera. Beside the driveway is a large log, slowly going back to nature. It is the remnant of a big oak tree that blew over in a windstorm a few years back and took out my power and phone lines. It is almost completely covered in a wide variety of colorful fungi, some of the prettiest I have ever seen. Many sections remind me of a coral reef, and the colors are astounding.

The plant commonly called Thrift throughout the South is technically Phlox Subulata, but regardless of what you call it, the Swallowtail Butterflies love it in the spring,
both the Eastern Tiger . . .
and the Black varieties.

The Catchlight small group from Church of the Highlands hiked up Ruffner Mountain last evening to watch and photograph the sunset
and the lights of Birmingham coming on.
I had some trouble with lens internal reflections of the specular lights (I believe because of the UV filter on the front, but not yet confirmed) but a few came out usable.
