  2. Sometimes photos come along
    That fascinate and haunt you

    And yet I really want to…

    If there were a Favorite button on here, I would click it! That perfect, glowing orb of a mushroom contrasts so beautifully with the fresh green things growing around it. I’m with Jennifer: it looks so tempting, even though I know better.

      Thank you, Lee! So glad you liked it. It was an interesting spot with the grass growing like a moustache from underneath the mushroom! I wasn’t sure what to do with until yesterday morning when I decided to write a poem about it. Also didn’t know what it was until I Googled “Red speckled mushroom!” 🙂

    I wouldn’t want to eat it. I do not like the taste of fungi. But I would like to keep it in a glass case, perfectly preserved, because the sight of it makes me smile. Beautiful!

    You captured many things in this image. Well done, Cathy!


  8. You were certainly in the right place at the right time with a camera to find that magical mushroom, Cathy.

    It certainly looks like it carries something extraterrestrial here! They are amazing to see.

      We get a lot of mushrooms in the Rockies in the fall, Lynn. I just wish I knew more about them. Apparently this one is poisonous, but there are many restaurants in the mountain towns whose chefs know of special places to harvest wild chanterelles! Amazing!


  10. I love it ! So whimsical and I took a weirdly parallel photo although man made . Hugs Cathy!

    We were at Longwood Gardens on Sunday and came across this wonderful whimsical little hovel, or lean-tos, made for gnomes in the forest.My photo does not do it justice but your wonderful orb did so!
