Here are mine.



Pinweel Marasmius


Unknown, but amazing Purple Mushroom


Found the first one on a small oak twig, and found the second one on my back lawn underneathe a board that had been placed there for a few days ... shriveled-up within an hour of being exposed ...

Wow.. just a bitty baby!   The purple mushrooms are so rich in their colour!  What luck you were ready with camera in hand!  We get really pretty mushrooms here too but they come out later in September.  I am out in the country near Ottawa, Ontario Canada.  Nice shots..and very clear!

The second one looks like the Purple-bloom Russula, Russula mariae

Thank you for your suggestion, Bill, but I do not think that's what it is.

The Russula is a fairly large and robust fungus, with heavy whitish stems and thick, tough caps ... while purple mushrooms I photographed were tiny and delicate, with soft grayish stems, and with fragile, velvety caps not much bigger than the nail on your pinky finger.

Amazing images, John. The unknown purple mushrooms look delicious. If you're colour blind, that is ...

OMG, thanks for those! Don't think I'll be throwing those in a pan with some bacon and eggs either!!!

Here's something spotted in Lyme Park, Cheshire, nearby where I live...

That is a really nice photo, Nigel, especially with the matching fall leaves. Well done.

I will try to hunt-down some more for later Smiley

Thanks John, coming from an expert, I take that as a real compliment. Fungi are fascinating organisms.

Here's a more general view of Lyme Park, taken on the same day, by the way:

Beautiful park, Nigel, and thanks for the compliment.

However, I am no expert: I am just a guy who bought his first DSLR a year and a half ago Smiley

Looks like it may just start walking and talking, doesn't it?
