Dancing with the joy of – just being! Winter reveals the decorative costume of lichen and fungi sported by this forest sapling.
The intrinsic joy of pure being is seen in this small forest dancer. Lichen and fungi create a graceful costume and enhance the delicate features of this young sapling. He lives in woods of LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve, St Charles, IL and is enjoying the warm winter sun!
Here’s a close up of his face. I love the detail of his eye and snout!
