FungiFriday - the forest with red leaves
It was a short walk to a nearby forest. My goal that day was to shoot different types of mushrooms. I didn't even take any basket or a knife to pick some. That's not what I was there for an I didn't really expect to find any edible ones (=the ones I pick and eat as I am sure many other were edible).
Quiet woods, colorful leaves, few birds here and there.
Few were hiding under a fallen tree. They squeeze out from between the log and the moss.
And of course I did find some of the tall ones, I think this is some type of Amanita. Pretty, wide, dark beige hats with some lighter spots.
What are you then?
And some of the super super tiny grey ones. Their hats were about 1 cm across only and the legs were as skinny as a match. There were plenty of them around stuck in the mosses.
As a little bonus some red leaves from the same place. The small bushes (whatevr they are) and very common in the woods there an in the fall the get the most amaing shades. From yellow to this dark pink-red.
A bit bitten up by some bugger, but it doesn't matter. Still pretty :)

I'm always impressed that anyone can tell a good mushroom from what that should be avoided at all costs. If I chose one, I'd probably die immediately.
These pictures look good and have some really good bokeh on them!
I can only tell a few. I often see people the ones I would never pick cause I would think they are just waiting to kill me and it turns out they are delicious.
But better not risk it. If you don't know - don't pick.
Good photos! The bokeh effect is really good and the edit on the colors in on point too
How you know if a mushroom is edible or no?
I don't :) I knew a few types that I pick and I know they are ok. The rest I don't know so I don't pick.
Beige hat + light spots = beauty 😍
Sounds very trendy an posh :D
I found these photos of mushrooms beautiful... But I have to confess that I was enraptured looking at the first of the two "bonus" shots... The one with the red leaves perfectly in focus, with its color, its small marks... It looks so "artistic"... Nature is a great thing, it always has beautiful details, we only need to have the sensibility to find them, as you usually do... Thanks for sharing!
Because every little thing is photographable :)
No matter how hard the mushrooms try to hide from you, you will still find them! 😉
They have to try harder :)
That's for sure! 🤣
Hello dear friend @ewkaw good day
What a beautiful and fun walk you have found beautiful varieties of mushrooms, I love the ones that hide under the branch of the tree
Beautiful shots. Congratulations
I take this opportunity to wish you a splendid weekend
Thank you! It was rally nice... but the woods are always nice for me :)
Have a great day!
Your a very FUNGUY!
You have very good eyes to find them. very nice photos greetings have a nice weekend.😊
Thanks a lot :)
Wow! I really like how all the tiny details pop out in that first picture: all the little speckles on the rock, the texture of the moss, and I especially like how the mushroom is propped up on the little pine needle. Very nice shot!
Thank you! They look different when you can look at the from this perspective, right :)
Great mushroom photos! Do well to only pick those that you are sure are edible. I too love mushrooms but I only pick Porcini, Chiodini and Pioppini, these three I'm sure I recognize, I have doubts about the others.
I really like the photo of the dark purple mushroom, they often turn that color because of the hallucinogenic substance they contain, but I'm not sure if this species of mushroom in the photo is the same, but it usually is.
I wish you a nice day ;).
Thank you! Yea I only pick a few myself I know are ok. I am sure I leave lots of edible ones behind, I am not confident to pick anything new.
Thanks, have a nice day too :)
You're right, better not to trust those you don't know for sure, mushrooms are beautiful to look at, but they can be very dangerous.
Have a happy weekend ;).
