Spring is coming

With spring just around the corner, I paid a visit to a small nearby wood situated in a river glen. Each year in early March, it provides a fine display of Scarlet Elf Cup fungi Sarcoscypha coccinea which pepper the many decaying stumps and branches along the river. Over the years I have accumulated many images of this species but can’t simply resist adding to the collection each year. A few Wood Anemones Anemone nemorosa were also just beginning to appear. I also found a few of the smaller fungi attached to small mossy branches. Although it’s still early in the year, I find there are always subjects to photograph all year round if you look carefully; one of the advantages of shooting close-ups!
