Celebrating the Small at British Camp

Yesterday I took advantage of a break in the rain showers to take a hike at British Camp. It turned out that everything that caught my eye was little:

Snail shell

First Calypso orchid of the season

Mushroom catching a ray of sunlight alongside the path

Blooming red flowering currant, which I'm sure is attracting lots of the rufous hummingbirds that are still eluding me

Then at the end of the day, I had a great visit with composer and fellow blogger Alex Shapiro, who has a studio on an amazing property at the north end of the island. Just as I was getting ready to leave, the sun came out from behind the clouds once more in this stunning prelude to the sunset:
