Mushroom Walk, Part IV

More fungus from the Letchwork State Park Mushroom Walk in Sep of 2004. I don’t know why I just have the underside of this next one. I think because they were coming at us so fast and furious, I didn’t have time to photograph the top:

Here’s a nice little one in a pile of leaf litter:

And another really interesting one: IMG-051

A top view of this next big one: IMG-052

And a side view – pretty cool, huh? IMG-053

And the next one is pretty and interesting – broken by the time it got to us: IMG-054

And a little one being modelled by Shawn’s hand:

I can’t have a shroom post without shroom on a stick: IMG-056

The next photo is fuzzy:

This is hard to see:

Another nice juicy one (if isn’t poisonous it looks like it would make a good meal). This is being modelled in Sue’s hand:

And the bottom view:

    Are you trying to ID these? Hope you have a good book – the variety is incredible!

    Well, at least none of them look like….you know.

    I read in a book that a mushroom is just the visible part of a vast underground fungus network that can span acres. Cool.

    Laura – No I don’t need to ID these. Maybe someday when I have nothing else to do I’ll work on looking at the list I wrote and my Mushroom books. It’s not easy!
    Susan – Yup, no you know whats in this batch – but now you’re looking for them! Isn’t the underground fungus network cool! The small part we see is the fruiting body and they have millions of little spores trying to create a mushroom village.
