They are not wildflowers. . . or trees. . . or animals. . . there are a few categories shrooms could fit in but thought I'd try giving them a place of their own.

Partial inspiration is one of the biggest stalked mushrooms I've ever seen. I was hauling sticks from a fallen tree and saw this across the pasture.

Plenty of room to get the camera underneath.

I'd like to get pictures with better light during the day but with my luck something will take a bite out of it overnight.

Autumn must be prime fungus weather because last week I noticed the opposite end of the spectrum -- some of the smallest mushrooms ever. Probably less than a half inch tall, I was expecting tiny gnomes to yell "get off my lawn" at any moment.

Oyster mushrooms close to home at a local State Park. Quite a few scattered around the park. We McGyver'd up a long stick with a small sickle duct taped to the end, sort of a Grim Reaper in training Scythe, to reach the higher ones.

Before leaving for work this morning I walked out to the giant mushroom to find it laying on its side with a chomp out of the top. Guessing the deer or another critter found it tempting.

I was able to use a smaller nearby mushroom to get the undershot/blue sky background I wanted.

A couple years ago I carved out a walking trail thru the trees/around the pond near my house. On a quick walk thru this afternoon I was surprised to find nearly a dozen different kinds of mushrooms growing. . . everywhere. Not wanting to be labeled "Mushroom Man" I will not share them all but here are a couple.

White with black speckles -- wish I could get a better angle on this one.

Lastly I noticed this one up in a tree. Swapped lenses (300mm) rather than drag out the ladder. Looks Sea Anemone like to me.

A spring tradition here is gathering this tasty kind of mushroom (this photo is from 2015)
