The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Mushrooms 12

Not everything is on the ground.

This has to be my favorite fungi.  It's common name "Witches Butter" helps make it a favorite.

I always have a hard time photographing yellow in low light but I was able to get a little detail here.

Here is a whole colony of mushrooms.


  1. i'm always enamored by the moss.

  2. That butter of the whiches looks very tastefull. Can imagine they come flying on their brooms to get a little piece of it.

  3. I have never heard the name "Witches Butter" before. Interesting.

  4. Very unusual... don't let Sinbad get into them!

  5. How do you keep coming up with these!?

  6. These are amazing. I would love to explore this area.
