Still looking

by Brian Scott July. 25, 2021 319 views

It's still Saturday, July 10th 2021. I've spent quite a while in my favourite place, getting lots of photos when I was meant to be enjoying a walk but, enjoying grabbing pics of the nature of the area is probably more relaxing than the walk itself.

Life in the wood chips

Life in the wood chips

There were a couple of piles of wood clippings where I guess the tree fellers (old Irish joke) had got rid of some of the felled trees in the area and when I went for a closer look .....

Some wood piles had nothing growing in them but a couple were home to a multitude of fungi.

I absolutely love fungi. The shapes, colours and variety make for wonderful subject matter, in my opinion. (Must take more time over these shots)

The colours and shapes in the wood chips only added to the scene.

Don't look down on us

I used to attempt to identify the fungus I'm photographing but, I gave up a while back, there are SO many!

Wrinkle, wrinkle little ....

Much of the time when I come down here, I have to remind myself to head home, I get lost in exploring, looking, finding and getting shots.

For those who have not seen it, this shows the past life of the area I now explore.

The majority of the shots I have shared in this series were taken on my Panasonic Lumix TZ 100. I hate to say but, I went back the next day, with my Nikon. (there's more!)

One more to come from the Lumix ...

Really nice Brian - I have some taken the last few days, but not as nice as yours. I can't get down low enough yet. But I'll still put them up since Linda likes them so much. But, as a biologist, I have to say, they are neither closely related to plants nor animals - they have their own separate kingdom.

👍 interesting to know that John, they're fascinating. I've only eaten wild picked once and that after they were checked out for me

Good photos. Fungi are amazing. I watched a documentary once which was so terrific. Fungi are invisible except when they "fruit". They are organically related to animals rather than plants. Very important to environment. More please.

Nice shots!  The curves of the mushrooms make such a nice contrast with the wood chips, and the mushrooms themselves are so interesting.  I'm ready for more.

What a great place to get "lost" in.  Some really beauties you captured.
