The biological clock for this variety of mushroom went off this past week. I've seen them in clusters all of town. I ran this photo through some software to highlight the shadows and highlights and add a bit of noise as well.. Just to make an otherwize bla picture a little more interesting.

nice .... lots are starting to pop here, Aug is usually hot and dry here so they are a pleasent surprise....

The 8080 is great for macros, but doesn't have enough telephoto to do birds and wildlife, I haven't been able to get landscapes that i am happy with, may be the person behind the camera : ) It does a good job on the pots too, which is what I bought it for. Would like to get another camera with more zoom.

Thank you Sini. I remember last year when so many people posted hundreds of pic's of mushrooms of many varieties...some, very pretty.

Thank you Binni. We are getting some rain from a tropical storm today and tomorrow, so I expect many more to pop up.

mushrooms are really so fascinating. I was walking up the yard one evening looking at the teeny tiny puff balls...next day they were BIG puff balls!

Yep...they grow really fast....and 'go' almost as fast. Wish I knew which ones are edible.

probably the ugliest is the most edible and the prettiest the most poison... hmmmm ;)
