This pink mushroom came up through a bed of moss, and it carried a piece with it. Makes a nice hat, don’t you think?

I believe this is a species of Russula mushroom. The picture was taken in an opening in a hardwoods forest in Montgomery County, Pa, on August 27, 2011.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    LOL I love that hat too ;o)) Lovely capture.

  • Thanks:>) It was one of those rare things that take being in the right place at the right time. These pretty little mushrooms don’t last long, especially since slugs think they are a gourmet dessert.
