A Winter Walk

I suspect this is the remains of a Bald-faced Hornet nest.
We all have days like this, right?
A bad case of bagworm… although not of course for the Evergreen Bagworm Moth overwintering in these things.
Persimmon fruit road kill. This is a seed of the fruit.
A slug enjoying some mushrooms. A lot of creatures eat fungi. It’s best not to tell mycologist hobbyists where the ‘shrooms are so they don’t compete, stomping hither and yon and ripping up habitat for their own habit.
Same tree as the mushrooms and happy slug. A wasp in January! The whole world is thrown out of whack.
