Posts Tagged ‘Phoenography Challenge: Nature’

In France, mushrooms are beloved and eaten with gusto; even, such as in the case of truffles, revered, stolen, lied about and fought over.  You must know which are edible and which are not, but you may always take your finds to a pharmacy, where you will be informed as to which are are edible and which poisonous.  While taking the dogs for walks through the forest, we keep our eyes open for mushrooms but due to the atypical dry weather, all we’ve found are either old a/o dried out, or inedible.  However, they make lovely photo subjects.  Here are a few of today’s finds, unretouched except for framing and copyright.  You may look without fear of poison!

The first Monday theme for the Phoneography Challenge is “Nature.

“The sudden appearance of mushrooms after a summer rain is one of the more impressive spectacles in the plant world.”
