Macro Monday - 'shroom

Lots of rain and mushy ground makes the mushrooms grow. This was along the hiking path in Green Lane Park (see Sunday Stills). You can just about see the slug on the stem.

I'm wondering where the fairy is!!!

Ugg! A slug- hope you didn't have to get too close to get this shot :D

colleen said...

Very cool. I sure hope you didn't get too muddy when you took that picture!

No gnomes, fairies or elves around, just me the 'shroom and the slug...More storms this week so I'm sure more mushrooms will be sprouting.

Quinn - I did get pretty close to take the pic but the camera has a great zoom. I didn't even notice the slug until I downloaded the pic.

Ester - no idea if this is edibile but I wouldn't take my chances.

Gotta love these macro shots, not only do they make me feel small (I so want to step underneath that 'shroom...but I think I'll wait until the slug moves along. lol!), but they also allow me to see things that I might never see. Mushrooms are quite rare in our area....of course, so is humidity and rain. lol!

Great job on the photo!

I love "srooms! You could just set a bowl of beer off to the side and the slug will dive in. :):)

Wow! That's a beauty. It never ceases to amaze me the variety of fungii there are.
