After all, aren't the woods just dead brown and gray this time of year?
Well. . .
No, they aren't. Especially this year, when temperatures have been warmer than usual, and we've have rain, but no snow that stuck.
See for yourself.
Moss on stumps and rocks are green:
Lichens on trees are various shades of green:
Grass and other cold-tolerant plants are still green in the leaf litter:
So, that is why camo for deer hunters includes shades of green.
(P.S. this public service announcement brought to you by the fact that I am still hunting and there are still no deer here! and I am so tired of looking at trees and birds and squirrels.)
