I took this shot on the side of the backroad on my way home from town in Amherst, Virginia, USA. This mushroom was huge! Bigger than a hand opened up all the way. It caught my eye because it looks just like a huge flower. I have never seen a mushroom grow like this before. Taken with my Canon Powershot on a macro setting. As is straight from the camera. Isn’t Mother Nature wonderful?

    I’ve never seen this either, Ginny….it’s very interesting and really beautiful! Great work!

  • Thanks Nori! I’m glad you got to see it and I’m glad you like it. There were two of them….but the other one was up on a hill and wasn’t nearly as pretty as this one.

    This is so cool, Ginny. I have never seen anything like this either and it does look like a flower. Great find!! It’s really quite pretty.

  • Thanks Carol! It was right along the side of the road near a big stump that I always look at when I go by. Looking for critters. LOL
