Just before I recorded the bird sounds of the previous post I had come across a whole, new to me, spread of mushrooms. A different area, a different mushroom, that's all I can say.
I don't like to disturb them but I did find one uprooted perhaps by the hoof of a deer. This gave me an opportunity to photograph the underside.
Yes I picked it up and posed it for this photo so my fingers were probably tainted with a most deadly toxin. What I won't do for my followers in getting a good picture.
I continued on through the forest, recorded the bird sounds and pressed on. Soon I found myself in a familiar canyon then finally once again where I had located my first Witches Butter. It was still there but now something new had formed nearby. You can click here and here if you missed the pictures of Witches Butter.
Further on I found this and am not sure if it is the same fungus or not. This was not as leaf-like looking and a much purer white. You can judge by the leaves that this fungus is quite small.
By now, after a several hikes looking for mushrooms and fungus I am beginning to get confused. Have I seen this species before or not? I don't know but here you are.
