June fungi


 Having had a fair amount of rain and then sunny days that have warmed pockets around and through the canopy means I'm starting to see mushrooms, toadstools and all sorts of fungi popping up. A few explosive ones (which as kids we used to call puffballs, but these are a bloody brown inside) and hundreds of tiny ones like dots in the leaf litter.
 The occasional bigger bright orange specimens.

And this one determined to rise above everything else!

These are terrific photos, Sherryl. I also take a lot of nature photos in the conservation areas near our home and fungi are a favourite of mine as well as trees, flower heads and cones.

Aren't they beautiful up close? I have had a new camera for about a year and I love the micro close-up options with it. I'm often down on my hands and knees!
