The summer of 2004 was very wet up here in Northern Alberta, Canada and there were a huge number of mushrooms. They are, I think, VERY photogenic. I'm not a great photographer and I don't care to learn the names of them, but I do like shooting them. Here are a few of my favs.
The whole collection numbers about 300+ and most of the originals are 1600 x 1200 and 300Kb to 900Kb in size. These are shrunk and quality reduced a little to save space.
AND.......... drum-roll, please........ the famous Diamond Willow Fungus.......
You'll find a lot more information about this magical fungus at http://www.sticksite.com/fungus/. They are used in native ceremonies, for cleansing, health, headaches etc.
