Yup....that's how it starts....
As much as I have gotten into photography I still really only take photos of mushrooms and the occasional landscape.
If I take 800 photos on a camping trip 784 of them will probably be mushroom photos.
sick of state parks an nature reserves. Bush walking tracks that just stop or climb a 400m hill in like 100-200m climb. all on a enduro bike and only trail markers are star pickets and wtf do they fence along ridgetops, that just totally fucks access.
Playing cat n mouse with a ute on the way home doing 130km/h on 110km/h road and a license restricted to 80km/h, straight past highway patrol. Lucky ute was close enough to obscure my plates.....
Just some random photos I've taken on my recent hunts here around Melbourne.
1. Growing under an elm out of the ground, but likely in contact with buried wood. Tried to identify this baby last year and people tried to tell me it was Omphalotus. I still think it's an oyster. It smelt pretty fucking good.
2. Growing on a live paperbark tree. This thing has been going strong for about a week now.
3. Growing from a tree stump near Oak.
4. Sneaky little pic of some actives/Psilocybe subaeruginosa just before I picked them.
5. Siamese twin subs.
6. Agaricus austrovinaceus? Growing near eucalypts. Took a print, which was a heavy dark brown.
7. No idea what these were, but they were growing out of woodchips in a park, quite close to a huge subaeruginosa patch.
8. No idea. Woodchips again.
9. Coprinus or Coprinellus?
10. The veil on this was beautiful and cobwebby.
11. Tremella fuciformis?
12. The colour of these was amazing.
13. Curry punks?
14. No. fucking. idea. Not fungus, maybe a kind of crysalis/cocoon? Anyone got thoughts?
1. Possibly Tricholoma, it is neither Omphalotus or Pleurotus. Omphalotus nidiformus. 2. Probably Gymnopilus sp. cap shot? 3. Mycena kuurkacea. 4 & 5. Psilocybe subaeruginosa. 6. Agaricus, could be A. austrovinaceus. 7. Caps resemble Leucopaxillus eucalyptorum, would need to see stipe/gills to confirm. 8. Perhaps Macrolepiota or Chlorophyllum, need more photos. 9. Coprinellus sp. 10. Could be Agaricus. 11. T. fuciformis or perhaps even T. encephala. 12. Growing from wood or the ground? Leaning towards Entoloma. 13. Pynchoporus coccineus. 14.
Howdy all just a few others i found today while hunting. Feel free to id at your leisure. Thanks
I found these under a dead tree, a little group of 5. I think they may have been growing on the dead trees roots. I upended one for a pic, rusty orange from touching the gills, they seemed to smell similar to P.subs but sweeter.
2: These were random, just three all on there lonesome, random grassy area. I gently pushed one over for up skirt shot, had a very large bulb in the ground and then end of stipe.
3: These things are a dime a dozen, plague like everywhere, pretty much all i see...growing out of the pine needles.
Not many A.muscaria around this year that i have seen, random 2 on there own..
