2011, Day 341 - Highlighting

There is something very primitive and primeval about moss and ferns; when I am in a setting like the one below I am always on the lookout for leprechauns and velociraptors.  I am pretty sure the two are related but one is good luck and the other is very bad luck.

I like how the rising sun illuminates the moss and the ferns so that it takes your eyes a minute to see the rest of the image.  In art you only have so long to make an impression so the hope here is that the bright colors will draw you in and the longer you look the more you see.  Dinosaurs may be hard to miss the leprechauns are pretty sly, can you see the one pictured below?
