Buck rub season

Continuing on with the outing at the Garnett Preserve.

The bucks have been busy as of late as shown on this sapling. We ran across probably a half dozen rubbings. The male deer are trying to rub off the velvet from their antlers or to leave a scent. The scent communicates a challenge to other bucks and potentially attracting a mate.

Trees are individuals too! This Post Oak had real deep furled bark at its base.

A tiny seed had landed on the bark.

Next a grass vomit pile from perhaps a canine type. At least that is what Gracie’s looks like when she eats grass.

Next a log with different looking shelf fungus!

It was interesting because of the texture of the top of the fungus.

A similar type seed as above, also stuck here.

Another type of fungus on the same log! They are tiny.

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.
