These photos are astonishing! I only recognize the squatty 'puffball' type, but I think whatever is growing in that top photo, you've captured a set for a tale of Hobbits or 'little people!"
Some beauties there.
Wow, that first shot... can't believe how many mushrooms there are... and the last one, looks like that caulking that a homeowner sprays into cracks and crevices to stop drafts...
Nice group of fungi, well captured in pictures. People used to talk of the "fool-proof four," four species of wild fungi that were always safe to eat. Unless it's a morel, any I eat comes from the market! Jim
How spectacular, the last photo reminds me of a pair of child's feet :)Awesome shots !~Jo
These are great photos John. I love looking for fungi when I'm walking but haven't seen any for a week or more now, it looks as though the season is over for this year up on Blackamoor anyway. It's been a wonderful year for fly agaric - lots of them and big ones too. I might go in Ecclesall Woods this morning and see whether there are any around in there still.
Wonderful photos! It reminds me of when my elder brother came home and dragged us all out to pick 'edible' mushrooms. Well, they all sat and mouldered in the porch as none of us could summon up the courage to risk eating them! Jane x
Great shots, the second last is definitely edible. In Canada they call the Shaggy Manes. Occasionally I have them here in south Australia as well and really look forward to them.
They've gone mad here too this week John - I think it is a combination of the warm weather and the showers. You have managed to find some spectacular ones - I dare not eat anything except those which come from our greengrocer.
What an astonishing collection - love those yellow puffy ones, like marshmallows, but I don't suppose they're edible.
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
