Dark and light

In the dark understory of a deep hardwood forest, this large, langourous millipede lazily wound its way over the very rotten stump that was its home; here it attempts to cross a bridge to nowhere.   Several companions strolled nearby, presumably in search of food. 

A ray of sunshine broke through the dense overhead cover of bare branches and warmed a patch of soft, bright green moss.  A group of diurnal fireflies basked in the glow.
