Plants!

I captured these plants as I was walking to a coffee shop with my roommate! I was surprised to be able to find such a large variety of plants in such an urban area, where most of everything is concrete. I guess it just goes to show that no matter where you are, life always finds a way. It was a bright and sunny day, after a super rainy weekend, and the air was cold, but refreshing. Plants always seem to be somewhere close by, whether you're in a rainforest, or walking through a city center. Even though they were different plants, they all had similar characteristics which makes sense, given they were all in the same environment. All in all, a good trip that ended with good coffee.

Fungi!

On the 21st night of September...I found an abundance of mushrooms in New Hampshire! Also, it wasn't the night, it was actually the day. I just wanted to reference Earth Wind and Fire. Anyways, within an 100 foot square, I managed to find 4 different species of fungi! It had rained the day before, and the ground was still wet, but at the moment of observation, it was bright and sunny outside, with not a cloud in the sky. There was a stream nearby which probably provided to moisture necessary for these mushrooms to grow. It was actually quite surprising to see such a wide variety of species in one area! The lichen was found on BC's newton campus. I felt it was necessary to at least include one fungus species from around me.

Reservoir Walk

Took a walk at the reservoir. The reservoir itself is a man-made structure, but the flora and fauna around, and in it, are all wild. The weather was a nice and warm 70 degrees, the sun was out, and it was beautiful. People were going on jogs and walking around, and there was quite a large flock of Canadian geese swimming and diving for food. There were also a lot of swans in the area, diving as well. It was pretty funny seeing them tip over. There were also turtles in the reservoir!! Which I was quite surprised to see! Three of them were just sunbathing on a rock and I spotted another two in the water. Overall, a beautiful and educational walk!
