  1. Love love love mushrooms (eating them AND seeing them). They are so fascinating…..strangely a VERY old movie I remember as a kid got me interested in them – “Journey To The Center of the Earth” (which has been madly remade a number of times but the original was great). At one point the group was in a cavern deep underground where there were HUGE mushrooms…..I thought one day I’d see one that size (ahhhhh youth!). Anyway, great photos – really well captured.

    • I really enjoy mushrooms, too, Pam. They have such wonderful shapes and colors, don’t they?! I haven’t seen “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” I’ll have to check that out! I’m glad you like these photos. They’ll probably be among the first to come. I can’t resist taking photos of mushrooms when I see them. πŸ™‚

  2. It must be warm and wet there. I haven’t seen a single mushroom here for quite awhile now.

    • Well, it WAS warm and wet. Now we’re dipping back into the mid-fifties! We were spoiled there for a few days… (I’ll be over at some point soon to catch up on your posts… I’m behind again!)

    • So kind of you, Yoshi-sensei. I enjoy photographing mushrooms. They fascinate me with their variety of shapes and textures. I also like that they have such short lives–I find it reminds me to take them in and enjoy them fully while I’m there to see them. Sometimes I don’t have my camera with me, and know that there will be no chance of my returning the next day to capture their image, because it will surely be gone (eaten!) by the time I return (I’ve experienced this many times). πŸ˜€

  4. Lovely! There’s something about shrooms that is so surreally perky.

    • Thank you. Yes, I know what you mean, although I had to laugh out loud at your wonderful way of expressing it. πŸ˜€

  5. Oh my gosh, these are so cute! The first photo feel as though a fairy might be lurking just out of frame.

    • πŸ˜€ Thank you. Yes, I’m certain there were fairies just out of sight!

  6. Shrooms are the most amazing things. Just love those damp colours πŸ™‚

    • They really are amazing; I agree. I’m learning now to identify them, although forgot to include the IDs in my post! πŸ™‚

  8. Perfectly shot!

  9. Lilliputian umbrellas. I like the fairy tale quality of mushrooms. They never quite look real. The detail and color is great here.

    • The textures and colors are surreal, I agree. L and I have a few guides to learn more about them this summer, since she enjoys spotting them just as much as I do.

    Excellent sequences.

  13. My father and I would collect some similar to the ones in the bottom photo. I wouldn’t collect any now (unless their the tree dwelling oyster mushrooms)… because one little mistake can cost you your life! πŸ˜‰

    • Yikes! I’ll be careful about that! I do have some new guides I’m using, so hopefully won’t make any lethal mistakes. πŸ™‚
