      1. I went on a week-long fungi course with the Field Studies Council last year, which was very good – but I was struck by the assistant tutor claiming that he was still a ‘trainee’ after eight years of studying fungi! They are amazing complicated to ID. Although I do think fungi keys make slightly more sense than wildflower keys.

      2. It’s great you went on a course! I have quite a few reference books here, but some of these fungi are really hard to id.

  1. If this little delight of nature was called the β€œgolden breast” I would not be at all surprised. Nicely taken Pete!

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ I am hoping to captured them when they are fully open, but with work and the daylight hours diminished I will have to see the coming weekend.

  2. Your mushroom collection reminds me of one the first photos I took with my new Practika camera when I was 18 yrs old.
    I entered it in a contest and wow! – won the grand prize – a cruise to Mexico, which I took my mom on. I was surprised b/c the photo was nothing special – just a lone delicate mushroom on a log with some nice backlighting.

    1. Your photo must have made an impression, Michael! I had a Practika around the same age. I still have it, but don’t use it anymore. It was a great camera.
