2 more pictures above ! :)

Another moist and cloudy day, I had a plan in mind when I left the house and headed to the lower forest. I'd found a new kind of moss "sporophyte" that I wanted to photograph and was looking forward to getting some pictures to share.

However, as you can see by the image above, things didn't go according to plan! :D I thought I'd take a look around my favorite mushroom spots on the way to the sporophytes, and well...let's just say that the forest floor is ERUPTING with mushrooms! There are so many of them I honestly had a hard time putting a foot down without smashing at least one! Most are extremely tiny, delicate beauties, others are large, and some are the size of "button" mushrooms we get from the store. I really did try to resist taking pictures! But when I saw this one, I gave up the struggle! :D Although this one is like the one I shared a couple of days ago, it's not the same kind. That one was covered with a glossy layer of slime, but this one was much smaller, about one centimeter in diameter, and dry all over.

I hope that you don't mind all of the mushroom pictures! I just love them and they are all so different and unique that I simply can't resist! :) Tomorrow I will attempt to get pictures of those sporophytes like I planned today! Wish me luck! :D

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (29 May 1874 – 14 June 1936) better known as G.K. Chesterton, was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, dramatist, journalist, orator, literary and art critic, biographer, and Christian apologist. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox." Time magazine, in a review of a biography of Chesterton, observed of his writing style: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories—first carefully turning them inside out."

I can see why you couldn't resist this one, Janet. This is lovely and looks great on black background.
Perhaps today, you'll cpature the shot you intended when you went out!
Have a great weekend.
