Autumn is a beautiful time in the Wildwood, and so far this year it has been reasonably dry with crisp days and bright blue skies, the sunlight slants through the trees giving a beautiful clear but dappled light.
This one was tiny about .5cm across, with the light shining behind the group gave it a translucent look.
Here it is from a different angle with added fly interest!
This is the famous Fly Agaric, poisonous but rarely fatel has hallucinogenic properties.
And here is a Shaggy Ink Cap and two Shaggy Parasols.
These are oyster mushrooms growing on the side of a dead log so dark and well camouflaged I did not see them at first but an animal had found them before me and had eaten half the far side away I think I was lucky to get this shot intact.
And lastly this tiny little fellow less than half a centimeter across and growing in the moss on a dead log with the sun behind it shows the colour and markings off really well.
Autumn is not over yet but we are moving closer into winter, so I think there will be more walks in the Wildwood to come
I hope you enjoyed this walk with me and didn’t fall down too many hole and if you are of the canine persuasion I trust you found plenty of wild life to chase
Stay well be happy and enjoy life
