    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!

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

      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!
