#2 Was tricky in its own way. The green and red were definitely lichen in bloom. The brown is Tamarack Tree (Larch) leaves lying on the ground. The Tamarack drop there leaves every year and are found in the bogs in Ohio. They do look like a pine tree as they grow. We had some great guesses from Ann who said lichen and pine needles (check out her lake post), Gaelyn who knew the lichen was blooming (check out her trip into the canyon and her perm) and Darla who said it was dead leaves (she has blooming in her Florida garden and butterflies). Really neat job by the three of you, a trio of smart ladies.

What Is It XXXVII - Answers
#1 Was pretty tricky but here is the fawn as it went past my garden. If you now look closely you can see the fawn must have jumped just as I took the photo. You can see the tail of the deer in the right top corner in perfect focus. Now that you know it's a deer I think you can see it with the back legs and butt in the air with the head forward. It was a cloudy day and the camera tried hard to pull in the light. No-one was able to get this tricky one. It was a special capture of the little fawn. This photo would have been deleted before What Is It.
