Over 250 Bewick’s Swans (Cygnus bewickii/Kleine Zwaan) winter in the polder “Vughtse Gement” south of Den Bosch. The pattern of the yellow bill patch differs from individual to individual. Here you see 4 adults and 2 juveniles that take wing. Just before going home, I saw in the corner of my eye a Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes/Vos) standing in the bluish winter décor of the polder. Of course, I could not resist the temptation to take a few photos.

Early November Moor Clubs (Clavaria argillacea/Heideknotszwam) pop-up on patches of heathland. This one was found on a short walk during my lunch break. I photographed this soft pastel-tinted and marzipan-like fungus with a large aperture to create a small DOF.

The late-afternoon horizontal light rays - my camera indicated that the time of this exposure was 17h57 PM - illuminating this mushroom make the photo. It is taken in the forest “Eckartse Bos”, located near Eindhoven. White Saddle (Helvella crispa/Witte Kluifjeszwam) is readily identified by its irregularly shaped whitish cap, and fuzzy undersurfaces. The stem is ornately ribbed.
