Our Dutch camper website Califorum.nl has started a thread with pictures of nature around the camper and around the house: animals, birds, flowers, mushrooms, clouds, sunsets.
I like the idea, and will do a kick-off here. Maybe others can dig into their own collection.
Have fun!

Regards from Amsterdam,

Marc.

Yesterday in a wood near Amsterdam I saw these mushrooms on a dead tree:

We call these "elfenbankjes" (ivory benches?), in Latin: Coriolus versicolor). It's so ugly that it is beautifull...

Same wood near Amsterdam: Red Sulfur Head? Way more elegant than the previous one.

One of the main uses of our van is to take in nature wether on a day out or on a trip away. 2 pictures taken Monday. Both within sight of the van.cc1.jpg

This was in Holland, you need to have a good look or enlarge a bit to spot the roe.

It's time for some contemplation. A small wild orchid in the fields near the camping at Staffin, Skye.

There were hundreds of nice mushrooms around when we took a walk in the forest yesterday


And to stay with @hotel california 's theme of beautiful animals that sadly enough turned into roadkill.....

Crocuses next to the parking place of the Cali. Normally we see them here coming up in February. Now they raised their heads today, October 17th.

I think they are the Autumn variety:


Description
Colchicum autumnale, commonly known as autumn crocus, meadow saffron or naked ladies, is a toxic autumn-blooming flowering plant that resembles the true crocuses, but is a member of the plant family Colchicaceae, unlike the true crocuses which belong to the family Iridaceae.
