Well, here we are again in the thick of spring, and im noticing although its a late spring, our bugs are starting to wake up and make their way towards the flowers that have already opened.
Took a few shots so far, and wanted to share them with you guys... feel free to post up yours

First up were some eggs i found buried in the dirt when i lifted a small rock> I took a few shots and gently covered the eggs back up with dirt.

Not sure what kind of insect it is yet, but i will post it on a few macro boards, and see what the insect geeks have to say.

A dandelion, and some moss growing outside my house, as well as an escargot hanging out up in the forest. When i picked it up and flipped him around, air bubblers where coming out of his mouth, and you could see this fine layer of water covering it as though it were breathing within this tiny thimble of water.

Ok so yesterday I was out and about I got out at Broadway and Fraser to change buses. I crossed Broadway and was surprised to see these growing on the median in between lanes. My mom used to collect these when I was a kid for her moose stew recipe. I believe she called them shaggy manes. Was odd to be such benevolent creatures growing as close as possible to one of the busiest streets in Vancouver. In the second pic you can see how close the road is. Peace GS

Shaggy mane mushrooms are quite tasty if you pick them before the bottom edges start to turn black and slimy. A tallish Cone of a fungi. I like them sliced and fried in a bit of butter, yum. These days I might even use canna-butter. Nice find man.

Had some thoughts today on the correlation between flower color and and flowering season. Seems to be a lot of blues and purples about early on then not the rest of the year. Peace GS
