Thanks for posting these! I take little tests and see if I can name the species before I get to the description under the picture. They have been fun to follow.
Thank you so much Miles for continuing to share your outdoor adventures. It’s the next best experience to participating in your weekly groups.
I look forward to the beautiful photos of the fauna and flora from each trip.
Your kindness during this unusual time is so greatly appreciated.
while self-isolating these great photos are a delight. I really enjoyed the picture of the bottle brush licken, so easy to walk by something like that. the poetry is also a great addition.
Wonderful to see!
