  1. Mudcracks! What? Where in the heck is it dry enough down there for mudcracks! Shouldn’t it be more like mud puddles?

    Love the contrast between the upright green lines and the brown ground lines. I was always fascinated by the mudcracks in our backyard when I was little.

    It needs a really good eye to see the photographic potential here Steve. And this works 100%.

    What I can’t get over is the green inside the cracks. Is that algae? Moss? Something else? When we have cracks like that, it seems to me that they’re dry and dusty. I’ll have to pay more attention. I suppose soil type plays a role, too.

    The little plant on the left is a nice touch. It’s amazing that they can grow up in the midst of all that.

    • I would guess it to be algae, Linda. This should be a puddle is less dry times, like now, so that could encourage algae to form and thrive. This is a damp meadow on most days so I don’t think these cracks would ever be dusty.
      I was glad to see the other developing “clump” on the left. Maybe someday each of these mud “islands” will have its own clump of grass.
