blue mushroom
    #11381614 - 11/04/09 05:41 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

It was another nice day for a walk in Seattle.  Some people suggested checking out the area around public buildings (schools, power stations, etc).  While I didn't find anything active today, I did come across a lot of mushrooms, including some really dried out red stropharia and I believe some birch boletes, which were way past their prime, around a power station and a playground.  I also found a kind I've never seen before.  Google search hasn't been working all day, Bing turned up nothing and my mushroom books haven't arrived yet.  So I was wondering if anyone had any idea what this one is.

Stropharia aeruginosa.

They are extraordinarily beautiful. One of my favorites.

Bah. I just spent 10 minutes looking for a good "pics or it didn't happen" picture, but I fail at intarweb today I guess.

Well, I usually don't take my Nikon DSLR with me, so I don't have any pics. I should really get a small digital cam to carry around at all times for non-artsy spontaneous mushroom photography, too.

If you're tired of your nikon feel free to send it over here :wink: I'd be glad to take it. Personally I'm eyeing a little 12.4 mp digital myself - god I wish I had money

Yeah, for christmas I told my wife I wanted a new camera, and she was like:

"Well, I'm not sure we can afford another $250 right now."

And I was like.. yeah.. nevermind... <sigh>

I don't think she realized I was looking more in the 500-1000 range with no lense.

I right there with you.  Don't have a wife or anything, but am wanting to upgrade to a dSLR w/ a few lenses.  Even being frugal, I still am looking at $500-600.  I just ordered one of the gorilla tripods though for twenty.  For the price, it will allow me to pull off a lot more photos than I currently can w/ shaky hands or improvised stands.  The point and shoots are real handy when out hunting.  I don't think I'd lug a bigger camera around often, especially during hunts in the rain.  If you actually go into the camera's manual mode, you can do a lot more than if you stay in auto.

Yeah, tell me about it. The Nikon plus the Sigma macro lense was around $1200. The difference between little boys and grown men is that the latter's toys are more expensive, that's all.

Yep.  I'm lucky enough that a $1.00 toy still entertains my daughter for hours.  I'm not looking forward to the day of wardrobes, ponies and cars :smile:

Cool, what is the soil like that they were growing out of? Chips or compost?
