      Well. It depends. I have rainboots, which go up to my knee and work the best. I also have hip-waders, which I rarely wear because they are huge on me and are seriously annoying to lug around - unless your main purpose is to peruse mud flats or swamps. Sometimes, I wear just my hiking boots, which gets nasty and is only a last resort. And, on occasion, I go barefoot (if I know the swamp well and am assured that there are no super pokey sticks in there)...Yes, really. It's not a super big deal to me because I grew up wading through swamps barefoot so I didn't ruin my shoes and thus get in trouble ;)

      Well, there you go. Ferdy is a mansplainer. I have a feeling that Henriette might concur ;P

      And, don't worry - I'm not offended. I love snark and am quite fluent in sarcasm.

      Lol, ohhh! Ferdy is a stinker!! Honestly, I had no idea greenish blue was cyan. And, I cannot believe that I just got mansplained.
    7. I really love this one too for the same reasons. I just can't find a match so far. I see similarities, but no real defining characteristics.

      Thanks! Me too. I've been trying to get a decent shot of this fungus for a couple years, but it's always blurry! This is my best so far. Wish I knew the species.

      Thank you!! I have no idea why I didn't realize this before. Must have been a case of poo brain.

      Ohhh! You are so right! Thanks!

      No other shots, unfortunately...
