Spring, Closely         text and photos by Jeremy Wolff      Pawling Press April 9, 2010

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.
                -H.D. Thoreau

Spring has come at last; it has come fast and is close at hand.  Change may be constant, but only at this time of year, amid the ancient holy days of rebirth, is it so obvious.   The changes are moment to moment, the colors and forms I recorded yesterday are today long gone.   Most of these pictures, of mosses and buds and fungi, were taken as close as I could get, the technology allowing me to explore things I can't see with my eyes. The camera gets its nose in the dirt so I don't have to.
