First signs of spring in the local forest.

Spring can come early on the south coast of BC, and the first signs are popping up everywhere.

I went on an outing the other day, toting my D700 and a 60mm micro lens. I’ve been shooting with my iPhone a lot lately, so it was a nice change of perspective.

These sporophytes are sticking up on the piles of moss growing on a fence at Green Timbers Park. Lately, the moss seemed more ‘perky’ and alive, and when I took a closer look, I could see the capsules forming on little stalks above the leaves.

Definitely a first sign of spring on this wet coast.
