Here are some more fungi in the Sheffield area landscape, all taken with my mobile phone. No-one takes any notice of you if you take a picture of anything with a smart phone - but if you were to set up a tripod and a big macro camera on a busy roadside grass verge......... :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

More fungi in the Sheffield landscape - none of which I collected to ID as my wife was having an operation - I have recorded many species in the grounds of Sheffield hospitals.

The landscape of Edinburgh Botanical Gardens is very nice, but I don't think many folk spotted these fungi there last Friday.

Fungi were abundant on Saturday in an idyllic Lothian nature reserve. Untrampled, quiet, no dogs.....just like the woods around Sheffield used to be, but are no more.

That's a superb display, Adam. - And caught just at the right stage of development for a good photo!

Spotted these yesterday, with a bit of autumn colour in the background.
