A photo walk.

 Yesterday we did a local walk and the weather was pretty awful. It was quite humid in our waterproofs which we were wearing for the first time this summer. Today was a complete opposite, a lovely day out and no waterproofs required. 

This time of year is great for fungi growth so this post is just showing the photos we took whilst walking along.

Not fungi, but a nice Red Admiral as opposed to the White Admiral (below) which we spotted recently in Greece.

A huge cluster of Agaricomycetes.

Hairy Curtain Crust. Stereum hirsutum

Sheathed Woodtuft. (Kuehneromyces mutabilis)

Bit blurry Mica cap.


Easily recognised Fly Agaric.

Tawney Grisette. Amanita fulva.

Puff Ball

Pleated Inkcap. Parasola plicatilis.

Two Images of the Shaggy Mane. Coprinus comatus.

Porcelain Fungas, Oudemansiella mucida.

Hi Conrad, Some I know, I do use an app (Seek) and also if you take a photo with iPhone and then press the (i) for photo info it will tell you what it is.

BC. Fungi is fascinating, I love this time of year.

Nice one Alan. Sue also uses the Seek app. She got lots of pictures on Ben Wyvis on Sunday while I was doing the Loch Ness Marathon. (Lots of field mushrooms in the verges, but I didn't have a suitable receptacle!)

Its a fairly good app, especially a freebie. I did photo a Charcoal Burner but it wasn't very good. It wasn't until I got home that I realised it was edible. I must go back and see if I can find a clump of them.
