I don't know much about fungi, but I do know what I like.

Here, they are another signal of season change, cool nights, mild days, and good soil moisture. Pushing up from the forest floor, emerging seems so effortless, and silent...

in clumps

or all alone, tiny little ones

others with forest dirt clinging to the crinkly cap

and large ones with beautiful ribbing, part Gaudi, part Utzon

whose large souffle caps collapse and catch water for little people

and others like coral, with exquisite colours and shapes.

Great pics. There's a bit of Calatrava in there too.

Thanks Jarrett. Yes Calatrava too, perhaps the lightest of them all.
