Mushrooms and Lichen


Another macro taken with my new lens that I mentioned in yesterdays post. I was out in the woods looking for mushrooms, and there were surprisingly few to photograph. I think it has over-rained, and needed a warm day to help them come up. It was unusually warm on Sunday when I was out, so Monday was probably a different story when it came to finding mushrooms.

Since there are no flowers in my area right now, I will be submitting mushrooms to the "flower" memes and bloghops I participate in. I hope no one minds. They are the closest thing I can find at this time of year, and in my opinion, sometimes are just as beautiful!

  3. What pretty little mushrooms! Surprisingly, we get mushrooms here in the high desert in our pasture after a good rain but they are just plain.

  11. Yes that is absolutely lovely, I haven't seen an orange mushroom here in the tropics. And your composition and the colors of the environment which finally become the bokeh are splendid too! I am also engrossed with my newly acquired macro, and i also enjoy it, although my photos are not as beautiful as yours! haha!..Andrea
