Whenever we go for a walk in the nearby woods of Kottenforst, I am ever on the lookout for fungi. And when I do find one, I am compelled to photograph it. From different angles. Usually while kneeling so close to the ground to focus on one, I find others nearby. And I have to take photos of those as well. M, who is not a fungus fancier, walks on ahead. And often he finds himself a convenient log or rock to perch on, as I can get very engrossed in fungi, especially at this time of year. It’s been perfect weather for fungi — days of gentle rain, temperatures gradually cooling down, and then … brilliant sunshine!
Here are last Sunday’s finds.
This one was a gorgeous malachite colour.I don’t know if this is related to the one above, as its green is more celadon. What I love about this is that the gills look like the edges of old velum manuscripts.
And no, I don’t think any of these are edible. But it was fun to have these fungi brightening up the ground.
