9th September


High deforested area.


Rain most of the day.

This is Lycoperdon nigrescens - the Dusky Puffball. About 3 cm diameter. The pale specimen the the left is younger than the others.


This appears to be a Hypholoma, but no specific id, yet.


I'm not exactly sure what's happening, here, but the creature in the web is certainly a caterpillar of some kind (head visible to the left). Maybe the Capsid is stealing a quick bite while the spider is absent, or maybe the web was deserted. Or maybe the Capsid killed the spider.


Yellow Rattle appears to be making a third push. The early summer was very poor, so many insects and plants are flourishing now that it has finally warmed up.
