Decay on the forest floor II




Having a hard time figuring this one out. My best guess is White Waxy-cap.

We're probably going to shoot for a mid-January show and I want you to be involved.

Make sure you save you files in the highest resoluion possible. I'll know more in a week or so.

You're in if you want to be included!

Hey Steve,
I'll accept your waxy-cup but I don't know mushrooms at all...but now I'm hoping to get educated...will there be a test??
Have you found bugguide.net yet? If there is ever a bug you are not sure of just send a picture there and wa la...someone who knows will give you an answer....it is a fantastic resourse. Now I wonder if there is a shroomsguide.net????

It sort of looks sad there all by itself Steve. Lovely shots.

Hi Joey,
I would be honored to contribute to the festivities.

Eve, I'm by no means a fungus expert. I just find them interesting. Some are real easy to I.D. Some you have to get spore prints on a white piece of paper. There are lots of folks out there that know this area, hopefully some day they will stumble in. It is not uncommon to pull the 'shroom and photograph the underside to not the under structures. That gives clues too.

Then there's the "LBJs", Little Brown Jobbies. They all look alike.

Thanks for pointing me to the bug website!

Joan, It's been a tough year to photograph mushrooms. The squirrels and chipmunks have been eating them before I find them! Sometimes you find mushrooms growing in a circle or "fairy ring" This guy was a loaner.

I guess I have a whole new respect for mushrooms since my recent find. In the coming year I'll have to keep a closer eye out for them. Who knew there were so many different kinds?

This one appears to be a classic : )

Mushrooms seem to have such a short lifespan too. Some of them live only a few hours so I always think we are lucky to get the pictures we can.
