Pics from Saturday's hike
    #1363147 - 03/10/03 02:28 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I felt like using my new camera, and my friend felt like going up to the lake to walk around, so we did both. I was hoping that since the temps have been in the upper 60s around Atlanta, we would find tons of mushrooms. Quite the opposite. The closest thing I found to mushrooms were shelf fungi and a weird jelly.

None the less, I got plenty of pics... Enjoy:

The first shelf fungus, growing from a hardwood stump:


Growing from pine:


Gills of the one growing from pine:


Growing all over a dead hardwood(possibly oak):


Growing from same log as above:


Some weird orange jelly growing from a dead tree branch:


Same as above:


Some fungus that was completely covering a decomposing log(under the bark), it had neon yellow spores:


You know it's spring when you see this:


Some hairy plant that grew under all rocky ledges:


And a Salamander:


Thats it for this time folks, more pics to come once we get some nice mushrooms growing here. Morel season is just around the corner. Let the photgraphy battle begin :smile:

Hell yeah!!! Your pictures are AWSOME!! :smile: :laugh:

I like the quality, as that they look like they are taken with a normal camera, but have the crisp clairaty on the computer.

You're really good at taking pictures, the focal points and angles are cool.

I don't think thats witches butter concretefeet...Only because it looks too orange and not transparent enough...but, I could be wrong.

I like that salamander too.

Nice photos. The standards for photography are getting higher and higher.

That first shelf fungus is pretty easy because of the conspicuous zones on the cap. It looks like Trametes versicolor, Turkey Tails.

The gills on the next one are pretty distinctive, too. That should be Daedalea berkeleyi, because it's growing on pine.

I don't know about the next couple photos, with the little dried out shelf fungi.

The jelly fungus is probably Tremella mesenterica if it's fruiting from hardwood, if it's pine then it should be Dacrymyces palmatus. I think it's not as transparent as usual because it looks like it's drying out.

The interesting wood-rotting fungus which looks like a sheet of pores I'll guess is a Serpula, because of the colored spores. If the spores were colorless then it would probably be a Merulius. But I can't find any convincing matches to species for it. The closest I've found is Serpula himantioides, which you can see from the photo has a surface which is not quite the same as I think your photo shows.


I've just today seen the first wild mushrooms of the year - some way past their prime Flammulina velutipes. Just a month of so until the spring season begins.Nice photos. The standards for photography are getting higher and higher.

Happy mushrooming!

mesenterica can often be even dark orange. i think the species is really a catch all for similarly colored tramellas, because there dosen't seem to be much distinction exept microscopit features between species in this genus.
