Ulverscroft Manor - April, 2013 3/7

Another shot from Ulverscroft showing evidence of the late spring last year, lots of moss on the branches and very little sign of new growth on the woodland floor.

The moss looks totally at home, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Ray, I should have taken some close-ups really.
I love moss - this is a very pretty color!
Brian Walbey: I ought to have gone in a bit closer really.
yes, the luxuriant moss is in sharp contrast to the dry leaves
Brian Walbey: And I bet that moss had been there along time.

This dead wood has become very mossy
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, I suspect it had been there quite a while.

This is when I love the different colors of green, Brian!
Brian Walbey: So do I Ginnie, with a lot of woodland and fields around our way the countryside looks magnificent in May/June with all the different greens, quite breathtaking.

Goodness that is rather thick moss
Brian Walbey: Been there quite a while I would think.

I love mossy branches - and think of all the little animals living there!
Brian Walbey: I should have gone in closer Philine, a lesson I have learned.
The moss is alive and well and doing it's job admirably in this shot.
Brian Walbey: I now realise I should have taken some more close-up shots, I don't usually do this sort of subject.
eco nature
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chantal.
Nature reclaiming her own, no doubt it is now a bug hotel.
Brian Walbey: Yes in time I guess these old branches will have disappeared, thanks to the moss and bugs.
Beautiful shot of the vegetation, Brian........I can imagine the crunch of last years underfoot smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, I do remember the undergrowth was quite dry underfoot.
Nice composition of beautiful colours Brian!
Hope you get to see Alan's image today...
Brian Walbey: Yes I do like greens at the spring time of year. I've had a quick look at Alan's picture, I will study it in more detail shortly.
Wow, just look at how thick that moss is. Excellent shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I guess that moss had been growing for some time.
Mosses deserve a close look Brian
Brian Walbey: I should have spent more time going in close I guess.
These branches must have been there for a long time Brian! Fine capture.
Brian Walbey: With that amount of moss I suspect you are right Richard.

More good wood going to waste!
Brian Walbey: Shall I send you the route Mike smile
Moss covered logs are nice, home to lots of creatures.
Brian Walbey: I should have spent some time going in close John.
Great colours, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes two nice greens against that lovely brown base.

I bet this a "des res" for all sorts of creepy crawly things. I like the moss covering; "roof" insulation.
Brian Walbey: I should have spent time doing close-ups Alan, not my normal sort of photography.
