Look hard enough and you might find the shape of a heron or some other woodland creature in this gnarled, weathered wood spied recently by contributing photographer Michael Kaynard of Charleston at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

PHOTOS: Turtle basks

With February being more balmy than usual, it wasn’t surprising for contributing photographer Michael Kaynard to find turtles lapping up the sun during a recent photo shoot at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

When contributing photographer Michael Kaynard sent along this close-up shot of the hood of an Ford F-250 truck, we immediately knew it would be a featured photo in Charleston Currents. The photo, taken on a recent trip to Fernandina Beach, Fla. (see Mystery Photo), evokes feelings of quality craftsmanship and classic styling. Thanks, Michael!

PHOTO ESSAY:  The wreathes of Charleston

PHOTO ESSAY: The wreathes of Charleston

Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard has been hoofing it around the peninsula in recent days finding lots of pretty and neat holiday wreathes on local doors.

You’ll see a lot of greenery, but every now and then you’ll find something a little different — a cast bird wrapped in holiday finery or pieces of copper bent into the shape of a wreath. In addition to driving around and looking at lights this holiday season, take a look at the ingenuity that people put into the wreathes on their doors.

We thought we’d offer you a look through his lens in this photo essay.

You can almost hear this white shrimp screaming “Oh, noooo” as it is about to become lunch for this egret that was fishing this week along the tidal banks of the Ashley River in downtown Charleston. It’s been a good year for shrimp if you haven’t yet tasted this season’s delicacies. Photo by Michael Kaynard, Kaynard Photography.

KAYNARD: A great way to end Thanksgiving
