Must be Autumn when taken? These are Ringed Honey mushrooms……DELICIOUS if you can safely eat them (I’m allergic darn it). If you’ve never taken a mushroom spore print these are an excellent subject to do……..snap a mature cap off a stem and put gill-side down on dark paper. Leave for about an hour then lift off and look at the beautiful pattern!
Thanks Carla. You are a fountain of information!!! I’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to mushrooms. I just love the look of them! Never even thought of a spore print. I’ll have to try it next year. The photo was taken in the Autumn at the camp. Spent an afternoon out there doing fall photos and found a variety of mushrooms…so I just had to photograph them too! Maybe next year I’ll even pick a few and try them. Thanks again for the education!
Never try unless u know 1.risks…2.what you have! :o)Honey mushrooms are the kind that you are either really allergic to (vomiting)…or not. I’m the first. grrrYou can probably get a spore print from almost ANY mushroom you find…wether in your grass or growing on a tree. Kids love to see the results (guess I’m still a kid)
Nice capture, and title!
