First morel for the year here in Kansas for me. This tiny grey/black morel was picked with one of it’s siblings while a third stayed behind to give others a chance.Taken in a friend’s ‘backyard’ where their goats forage.NE Kansas, USA, April 26th

beautiful morel Carla! I am going today on my first mushroom hunt of the year. I hope I will find morels too. I go the first and only place I saw one few years ago. I cross my fingers… and I hope mosquitos are not starving. lol
Mosquitos haven’t been a problem here yet (not holding my breath though)….but the TICKS! EEESH…they’re are blood-thirsty this year. yackHoping you find something….it was a LONG time coming this year. Have a feeling the rest of the year will be just as bad :o(
Wow, I have never seen these around here. So intricate.
They are beautiful fungi Helena! Here in the US it’s considered the #1 favorite wild edible mushroom because it’s easily identified. They’re so ornate on the outside but the mushroom is COMPLETELY hollow INSIDE! No mistaking it.
Congratulations, Carla!!! Wonderful capture! Love the clarity and DOF!
Should have heard me squeal when I found it Lynn…lol Thanx for the comment!
you are lucky because finally I didn’t find any morel today in the forest but I found something really great. stick around my new pics. you will love it ;)
