Phoneography Challenge: Nature (in crisis)

It’s Phoneography Challenge Monday for Nature (in crisis)!  I’ve chosen one of the photos I took on our recent visit to Silver Springs State Park near Ocala, FL.

Even after death, trees abound with other forms of life.  Bacteria are decomposing the plant tissues.  Termites, woodboring beetles and carpenter ants are feeding within.  These are eaten by woodpeckers, lizards, toads and shrews.

The web of life will, in time, reduce this tree to a rich brown area of humus on the forest floor – waiting to be used by other living things.

To participate and see more Nature entries, visit Lens and Pens by Sally.

    How exotic Florida looks! Great photo!

    • Thanks, Johanna. FL definitely has its spots — just like the rest of the world! Oh, to be a world traveler with a camera. How fun would that be?! There are a lot of young people with blogs who do just that. Amazing! 🙂
