It has been a little tough to get good wildlife and outdoor photos this year because the weather hasn’t been very cooperative. It has been my luck that when ever I get a chance to pack the camera gear up for an outing the clouds roll in and the rain or just poor lighting takes over. Thursday was no exception. Never the less I ran from the rain and found my self a few kilometers away from home in an area that my family used to spend a lot of time. About ten years ago the forest suffered a major forest fire and was left looking pretty barren. As I drove through the forest I could see that was just the opposite. Mother nature has turned the forest into something you could maybe see in a big green house. Without the low lying bushes and tree branches providing all the shade the ground covering vegetation takes over with a fury. Wonderful to experience, wonderful to see in nature.
