Fungal Forays

An assortment of Goose Creek fungi late August 2010

This collection of three images is posted just to remind myself what I’ve been up to these past few weeks photographically and botanically (though the latter term is only true in the era in which fungi were lumped with “everything not an animal” and therefore considered plants.)

Since the ample rain of early August, we’re back into a rainless period and the above-ground parts have pretty much dried up–or rotted: been consumed by other fungi who see in their brethren a food source–nothing personal. But when the next rains come, there promises to be a new surge of fungal forms to photograph. And I MIGHT be getting a new camera. (!)

  1. Beautiful photographs of your Goose creek fungi. do write a post on your new camera if you get it. Your photos are always so lovely that it would be interesting to know why you got a new camera. — barbara

  2. Question… First photo – what’s that next to the fungi (or in Italian, Funghi), batteries in a rubber band? Or, given that we are talking ‘shrooms – be they vials?

  3. I guess you have been mycologizing, not botanizing, but I’ve never heard that word, have you? I know you will like the bells and whistles on your new camera, but you sure don’t need it to improve the quality of your photography.
