During the drive to Jupiter Beach for a photo workshop, one of my friends suggested we try a more scenic route to occasionally stop if we saw something interesting to shoot. Several miles of the road were beautifully shrouded with old live oak trees. We pulled over several times and took turns shooting down the road before any trucks or cars appeared. While waiting my turn I scoped out the surrounding woods and found this unusually colored mushroom growing just off the side of the road. I wasn’t comfortable kneeling or laying down in the pine straw so I pre-focused my camera and set it down on the ground and took a few shots. When I first saw this theme, “Worm’s View” I snickered. Since we moved here I have never seen a worm. When we lived in Iowa every time you dug in the garden a worm would find its way out and after a rainfall worms were always on the roads or sidewalks. So, if there are any worms out there inching their way across the woods, perhaps this is a view they would enjoy.
