    Wow! Those are awesome shots. I knew a guy in the last place I lived who had a PhD in fungus (or something like that). I think they are some of the most fascinating plants, partly because of the amazing variety you see in a sampling like this.

    Looks like science fiction stuff!

      aren’t they weird? We’ve had rain on and off for the last month or so, the buggers have been popping up all over the place. Those are just the ones seen from the trail.

        The very last one (the orange jelly) is edible – Witch’s Butter. Try some – you might like it. I do! It’s eaten raw, preferably right there in the forest next to the log.
