Patterns in Nature

Number TWENTY- ONE – new Challenge record!

“Graceful Pair” – Kathy’s natural patterns!


“White Pine Cone” as seen by Ed.


“Grass Plumes” Rick has been waiting for just the right

                moment to shoot these. I think he found it!


Al’s birch bark is actually a coded message left by former

inhabitantsBeing part Native American, I was able to 

                   roughly translate, “Bewary of Hockomockers bearing

                objests that steal your face!” Or something like that. . .


Chris D. found this tree for our “Patterns in Nature.”


Patterns? You want patterns in nature?

                Get in touch with CAMNATS Pat.

Rich found this wasp nest and wasn’t stung!

Around Nov. 1st, this rose blossom lights up Mariann’s yard!
