Lovely. I guess you'll be doing some "belly" crawling for a while now?
M, thank you! The woods are full of fungi, they are plentiful. Very warm air, lots of thunderstormy afternoons with lingering high humidity levels. It is a great big change from last year when we were so dry and hardly had any mushrooms until late.
I had just been thinking that you were having a good year for mushrooms. It was very dry in Seattle and also here. So no mushrooms for me!
I am having a bit of a peak this morning at your gallery.....but will take me a while off and on to get thru it all I am sure.
Oops, forgot to say what a lovely find this is. A very atypical mushroom - well spotted. You photographed it very effectively - looks a bit like it is at the bottom of the sea.
JF, Last year we had such a dry year that our mushroom season didn't happen until very late. The welcome rains we have had has also made the shrooms come out everywhere! You can hardly walk anywhere in the woods without stepping all over them. (It's great but hard on the allergies.)
Funny you should mention bottom on the sea. I took another photo of this mushroom and just as I snapped, a stick I was standing on decided to also snap and the resulting photo has a bit of blur. That one really does look 'bottom of the sea'.
Thanks for your visit in my gallery! Don't work to hard!
It is known to me fungus. In our country it is called - "deer horns". Good photo. LIKE! Igor.
