It stays light so late now that I took a quick turn through China Valley after work today

The sun was low in the sky so textural subjects were well lit and well defined by their internal shadows.

I guess those are down feathers caught amongst the buds of the Flowering Apricot. In the middle is a very nice wild collected Hamamelis mollis that live in the middle of China Valley. It's real fragrant and the flowers are huge, but it did have a lot of brown leaves still hanging on. That's the issue with mollis. The fungus on the bottom was an outlier of a large colony that had completely covered three feet of this branch. It looks like a pancake but I'm going to pass.
