I wander around the wilderness behind the house every day, almost. I take a lot of photos of mushrooms, wildflowers, insects, leaves and anything else in nature, especially unusual or seldom noticed things. The wilderness is located in the northeast corner of Alabama. It's on the Cumberland Plateau, which is toward the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains.

Exploring, deer and squirrels cuttin' acorns
I went into the wilderness again today. I was eating some muscadines from the vine and heard a squirrel cutting acorns high in a white oak tree. He was dropping bits and pieces down through the leaves to the ground. I eased around slowly to try and get a picture when a small deer, that still had spots, jumped and ran up the old woods road I was walking on. It stopped and I got a picture. It's a little blured.
The picture above is a shumac tree leaves and berries.
