Though not edible, I think mushrooms are actually kind of pretty.
Many of these were taken at my brother's house,
where there are many different varieties that
grow in the forest.
The colors are always vibrant.
As are these bright yellow fungi growing on a downed tree.
Or the varying colors of reds and pinks in this one.
I love the yellow in these, one of my favorite colors.
We always called these shelf mushrooms,
what the actual botany name is I don't know.
This one is kind of interesting,
though to me it looks like the
start of penicillin!
Still elusive to me, is the grand father
of all mushrooms, the edible
puff ball. Sliced and fried, it's like
a giant steak. One day, I'll find one again!
