365 Nature – Day 267
In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Learn more about the project and see all the 365 Nature posts.
The season for mushrooms has begun. Perhaps is the cooler weather or the shorter days, but today I found a few mushrooms around the arboretum on my walk. Not many, but several areas with either the same kind poking up or several different types. I haven’t learned enough yet to identify them even though I took a day-long fungi class last autumn. The first step to identification is to find out the spore color and to do that they have to be picked. So I just look, take photos and leave them be.
I’m also seeing more slime molds lately too.
