In case you were wondering how well the children tolerate this new photography interest of mine, know that sometimes there is a lot of plodding and grumbling, while other times they take full advantage of my attention being elsewhere to have fun of their own.
This is what they were doing while I was taking pictures of Mayapples.
Abigail was quite taken with the algae in the creek and insisted that I touch it. She was right, it was very soft. I spent so much time playing in this creek as a kid, and it’s a delight to watch them explore and come to love it as well.
