Mosaic Monday: Mushrooms

2010-09-19 mushrooms, autumn

We had a very rainy week last week. One of the effects of the wet weather was mushrooms popping up in the most unexpected places. You might think I’d have to go out into the woods to find all these. As a matter of fact I found them all (except one) in a patch of grass along a town street - see the background photo in the collage below. I took all of these photos  (and more) within five minutes or so.

 The exception is the mushroom in the middle of the first mosaic.
That one I found growing out of the gravel on a grave in the cemetery
(on the other side of the hedge to the left in the picture above).

That is amazing Dawn, I have never seen so many species of mushrooms, they all look very nice but I would guess that some might be poisonous.

they grow like that here also, just along the streets, sometimes in fields at the park. i like that you showed us where you found them. the big brown one at the cemteray is remarkable photo. i like the two pink ones, i have not found pink here. the collage is great

I know very little about mushrooms and I certainly would not dare try cook any of these ;)

What a great idea to take photos of different mushrooms. Lovely mosaic.

Ginny said...

I love this!! It's a great collage, and each one is so different! I wonder what made them different even though they were growing in the same place? Kind of like people are! How bizarre to see some gowing on that grave.

Anja said...

amazing, never found myself so many mushrooms at such unusual places.

Great mosaic, I enjoy looking at the various types of mushrooms I come across too.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
