A Walk in The Tarkine - a Fungi Lovers Dream (Part 2)

After last weeks expedition where I rated the fungus at about 9 out of 10 I just had to go back and get those “shots I didn’t take”.
To be honest, I was a little disappointed. In comparison to last weeks 9/10 I would rate this week at about 5/10. Don’t get me wrong, there were still some great individual specimens there but just not the bulk and variety of the week before.
Consolation was a few that I didnt see last week were there this week.

All shots taken with my Nikon D90 with a Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens. Some then cropped to get closer.

The Sth Arthur forest is in what has come to be known as The Tarkine in NW Tasmania, Australia.
Bubblers Neil Boucher & Di Schoe were over from Victoria on a photog holiday so we organised a get together.
They were camping at Julius River Reserve about 40km south of Smithton.
The weather was meant to be crap so rainforest was the perfect choice.
In close proximity to Julius River is Wes Beckett Reserve and Lake Chisolm Sinkhole Reserve so we added these to the itinerary as well.…

Here is our early morning breakfast visitor looking for a few nibbles before he turns in for the day. He was none too perturbed to fossick nearby as long as we didnt move too fast.

First trek was to Beckett Falls on Dodds Creek. A month or so ago it was
