Pictures for Pam, Day 55: Pair of Mushrooms

Pictures for Pam, Day 55: Pair of Mushrooms
Steve and I are staying at my brother's home in the San Francisco Bay Area and a couple of days ago (and today also!) his wife took us on a hike up into the San Anselmo hills. It was a lovely day, though very windy and on the cold side, but the views were terrific! I brought my camera along with the hopes that I might find a few subjects to take pictures of. As it turned out, we actually found mushrooms! There were a surprising number of them too, and I am crossing my fingers that I'll get some winners when I get the chance to look at them on my computer.

Today's mushrooms were photographed quite a while ago but I didn't have the chance to share them until today. I discovered this pair growing on the side of a rotting log while exploring our lower forest. It's amazing how fast a mushroom can appear when the conditions are right. I'd walked by this spot the day before and didn't see anything of interest. But when I investigated one day later, I found this pair of cutie pies, just waiting for their picture!

Pam, I noticed that you have taken some pictures of mushrooms too! I love hunting for them as much as you enjoy finding butterflies on your flowers! I sure do hope that you are doing well today. Thanks so much for the lovely comments you've been leaving me, they make me so happy. Thinking of you every day!

Explored on 1/3/19, highest placement, #1.

Lovely shot, Janet, with great composition. Just the sort of thing my wife loves and will never pass up. Wish, though, I knew more about mushrooms. We collect morels in the spring and there are a few others we're sure enough about to collect and eat if we see them, but the fear of eating the wrong thing keeps us from collecting most edibles.

Speaking of my wife, I've passed on to her your new year's greetings and she said to say hello. It'd be nice if all of us could meet in person some time, but I do appreciate the fact that one makes friends here on Ipernity with people who one never meets face to face. I originally joined F**** to have a place to post photos but soon realized that the friendships and contacts were more important and that's the reason, too, why I continued on Ipernity when I left F***.

As to the rattlesnakes, it was one of the highlights of a great trip through California, Nevada and Utah. One of the other great moments was a watching a pair of burrowing owls south of the Salton Sea at the bird sanctuary there. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, I'm sure, but that's part of the joy of hiking and traveling. There is always something to see and occasionally something as wonderful as the rattlers.

Thought your description of the giraffes was hilarious. What a dork that guy must have been. Would love to have seen that show and can't even imagine what it was like. ?Anyway, I always appreciate your comments and the friendship.
