We went on 2 long hikes in nearby parks this weekend. I would think that the recent rains would have brought all the snails and slugs out, but not one was in sight. Instead, there were mushrooms all over the woods. So I resorted to photographing fungi. It was fun.
The problem with mushrooms is that the majority seems to be notoriously difficult to identify to species. I spent only about 5 minutes thumbing thru my mostly useless Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms before giving up. But here are their pictures.
The 1st one that attracted my attention was this yellow mushroom.
The next one is probably an immature fruiting cap of an agaric.
Red mushrooms were quite common. Here is one of them.
White ones were also abundant.
This was probably another immature cap that had just pushed itself up thru the leaf litter.
Finally, a bunch of small yellow mushrooms. There was a large cluster of them.
If you can put a name on any of these, please do so in the comments.
