It's Open Season!


It is beginning mushroom and fungi season again and I am so excited.
  I enjoy the thrill of the hunt and then capturing these elusive little creatures in pixels.
  These fellows are only 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.6 cm) tall.

    I don't think I could get down far enough to get a shot like this. :)

  5. Nice shots - always a sign that things are getting damp when the 'shrooms start to pop up.

    I enjoy the abstract detail of buildings - so a reasonable number of my macro shots look at details!

  7. The hunt for fungi is like a treasure hunt, something most tend to over look. You have caught some beauties here. Great lighting too.
