I decided to go for a quick hunt last week at the interface between a pine plantation and native bushland. Here are a few of my finds.
Mycena cf. atrata
I dropped the camera and got this shot. I thought it looked cool.
While I was taking these photos there was a group of black cockatoos above me, feasting on pine cones they plucked from the trees. In the otherwise silent plantation I was surrounded by the clicking sound of the birds pulling their cones apart with their beaks. Intermittently there was a loud crash as a pine cone fell from the top of a tree after being discarded by one of the birds, bouncing from branches on the way down followed by a thud as it hit the forest floor. It made me a little nervous not being able to anticipate where the next thud would come from and whether one of the cones would land on me. When I looked up I could see aflash of yellow under their tails as they flew from tree to tree, dropping their cones as they took off.
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus)

So this may be way off topic but I was wondering if you guys have koala bears that live in the cities with you? Those things are super fucking cute, if any of you have any pictures of them I would love to see them. Also wombats are super cute too. So much biodiversity in your area.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.

Don't see many koalas on my hunts, lots of kangaroos, and the odd wombat here and there though. You won't find any of them in cities as such need to head out bush a bit.

Didn't really find the first mushroom till about 4:00 o'clock. I hate being rushed, makes it so much less enjoyable.
Still glad I got up there though, and at least I know where to go know.
that's it mate atleast ya go out there i went out on pretty big hunt if you will today with some forum members we only found a few Subs and lots of pins but the day awesome so it never matters in the end fresh air, exercise, fungi, hang with some mates sounds good to me
