Fungi Sampler

If I hadn’t grown so scaredy-cat about late summer snakes, hungry coyotes and overly friendly foxes (and possibly a case of rabies), I’m sure I could find some remarkable fungi specimens in our woods. These are some I saw just off the path walking from house to gate.

I have a fungi reference book but am still learning my way around it, so don’t have any identifications for these. We have lots of pretty but dangerous amanitas (with the red spots on them) in the woods. I’ll forage for photos once cooler weather hits and the snakes retreat. Buck will bushhog a trail for me, too, and then the coyotes can see me coming so they can make lunch plans.
