Jack-O-Lantern Mushrooms Omphalotus illudens by 

These bright orange mushrooms are commonly found throughout our hardwood forest in October and early November. Their range is east of the Rockies.


The mushrooms grow crowded together on wood (like dead trees and stumps), and one way to ID them is to look at the gills; Jack O’Lantern gills run down the stem.

This picture was taken in Green Lane, PA, on October 31 (appropriate – LOL), 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.
