Fungi on the forest floor

The forest floor in the piney woods offers the greatest opportunity to photograph some of nature’s wonders.

This time I concentrated my pictures on the Fungi in the damp pine straw under the pine trees.

I have no idea what the names are and whether they are edible or not I just know they photograph quite well.

The piney woods never lets me down there are always a lot of things to photograph.

Mushrooms on a dead tree

This hackberry tree fell down about a year ago it was blown down by strong wind while the ground was very wet.

My husband cut part of the trunk up for me to use as plant stands outdoors. They work pretty well for this.

These mushrooms look like oyster mushrooms but I am not sure for sure if that is what they are. The tree trunk was taken over by them and this did not happen until the tree fell down.

I thought the mushrooms made a nice picture.

The fungus is among us.

Rainy day mushrooms

When it rains we always get lots of mushrooms growing in the yard and the pasture.

We had a fairy ring of a bunch of mushrooms in the pasture and some scattered mushrooms in the yard and pasture.

Mushrooms come in all shapes and sizes and some have more texture than others.

I find them intriguing to get pictures of because you really want to show off the definition of them to capture their true beauty.

Mushrooms can be quite photogenic if given the chance.

More Mushrooms

Every time after a rain we have mushrooms pop up and it is always in the same spots in the yard.

Sometimes it is those little tiny ones and sometimes it is these. Since I am not a mushroom expert I have no idea what kind they are.

They say if you pull them up by the root they will not come back this is NOT true I have done that numerous times.

I love trying to photograph them at different angles but it is honestly hard to capture their true beauty.

After the rain

Mushrooms areĀ fungi that lie dormant in the soil until the conditions are just right and usually they will bloom after a rain.

We have fertilized our yard 2 times so I am surprised to see any because the nitrogen in fertilizer normally gets rid of them in the soil.

I thought these were pretty neat looking so I decided to grab a few macro shots of them.
