  1. Two very different and stunning examples of mushrooms.

  2. The white mushroom is so matte and curved, but the golden orange one vibrates in the light.

  3. Great mushroom shots, deadly though!

  4. Lovely shots! I love photographing mushrooms!

  5. It can't be autumn already can it? I take mushrooms like this as a sign that the seasons are turning - I think it may not be the case yet!

    1. I had not thought of mushrooms as the beginning of Autumn. Perhaps we see more of them in Autumn because after a dry Summer, rain comes in the Autumn, and that encourages mushrooms to pop up.
      It is still mid-Summer here and very hot, but we have had a lot of rain.
      Hope you are having a great day!

  6. Great shots! Love the perspective!

  7. Are they mushrooms or toad stools? Are they poisonous or not? These are always my questions when I see one. Great pictures.

    1. Hello Linda Kay,
      I forgot we used to call them toadstools when I was a kid. I think we are more likely to see a garden fairy perched on one than a toad! As for poisonous or not, to me all mushrooms are poisonous except the ones I buy in the grocery store. Maybe I should see if the store-bought ones will stand upright in the grass and photograph them!
      Do you eat wild mushrooms? You are braver than I am.

  8. Good Morning Lea.
    You captured such lovely mushrooms! They are telling stories to us on the field!
    Your header is gorgeous!!
    Have a wonderful week!

  9. I'm surprised I haven't seen more mushrooms this summer -- there were a ton everywhere I walked last year.


I enjoy your comments!
