Even the low growing mosses had their accompanying water droplets!

Light rain may help to disperse the spores from some fungi.  Candlesnuff fungus can be found on many of the log piles and dead wood throughout the reserve.  When this photograph was examined, tiny white marks can be seen around the fungus.  These are the spores.

And finally.  Clouds are fascinating often bringing storms, rain or snow. This one was low over the Scrapes and not at all threatening. It is known as a lenticular cloud. Sometimes several of these lens shaped clouds can form one on top of the other.
