It’s hard to reconcile the bad press that fungus gets with the magnificent living forms in the woods on Cricket Hill. I took these photos earlier this week – the full set from that morning is here. The same cool-to-warm wet weather that nurtures these beauties also feeds the blight that’s afflicting the potato and tomato farmers down in the valley. But up in the hills it’s a lesson in form (and snuffling for 'shrooms, from the dogs' perspective). If anyone can help me specifically identify these, please comment.
