A camera is a wonderful thing, to allow the world to see what we find beautiful, strange, or interesting!
We've had an extraordinary year as far as dormant spores having a chance to come to life, so there have been things I've never seen and may be a few years until I see them again here in Southern Vermont, US.
*The captions make some of these, and explain my thoughts on why I included them. When on mobile they're harder to see, on desktop/laptop mousing over will provide the titles more easily!*
*These photos and/or descriptions should not be used for mushroom identification. I am not a mushroom expert. I have eaten one so far, and briefly tasted another but spit it out. I expect I will, someday, know my salt, but that time is not now so please do not take my word as any sort of authority.
**Also, I should note I only color correct to what the mushrooms/landscapes/etc look like in person. Nothing is more vivid than it appeared to my eyes at the time the photo was taken unless noted.
