Mushrooms


This is the time of year when lots of different types of wild mushrooms are found popping up in the fields and forests, but overnight, in a shaded area, under a conifer tree, in my garden, this little crop of mushrooms pushed their way through the earth and weeds. I quickly went for my camera, fearing they might be "magic mushrooms" and do a disappearing act. I know that some mushrooms are poisonous and with names like "death cap" and "destroying angels", I decided NOT to make a meal of them.

  8. This is a great photo. Looks like someone has nibbled on a few of them. Maybe there are gnomes nearby. :D

  9. I like your photo. The contrast with the pine branch and the round shape of the mushrooms is very nice.
