Dairy Bush GigaPan - 131 - February 29 2012

Year 3 - Week 26 - 360°

A blustery cool leap-day Dairy Bush GigaPan. Lots of wind and wet snow while shooting today - 0C and 93% humidity with wind from the East at 33km/hr (you can see this in the way the snow has packed onto the bark of the trees).
I had to wipe the lense after each column from 27 onwards. Many birds active while shooting (a nuthatch visible at start in the basswood; a hairywoodpecker was just above the top row in a sugar maple and many crows enjoying the wind-rodeo above the canopy).

I've extracted images from a year of Dairy Bush GigaPans to illustrate the rapid decomposition of the leaf litter in this forest associated with the presence of non-native worms. The forest floor is changing! www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRRv09_oF5w Will open in a new tab or window
