I have been greatly distracted this month by my father's serious illness and doing what I can to help Mom. I'll leave the details out, but it has been stressful and the outcome is still not known.
Even so, I have retreated to the solace of walks with camera in hand. As I've mentioned, it's fungus season now and since we've gotten at least some rain (actually we're over 6 inches for the rain-year), it's been easy to find subjects. I am still amazed at the diversity of these life forms.
