Denizens of the Forest Floor
« on: August 22, 2013, 10:36:23 AM »
If you live in a forest, or have any photos of the forest floor dwellers such as mushrooms, lichens, mosses, etc. this is the place to post them. Macro and close-up work only. Does not matter what lens you use, whether you use extension tubes or reversed lens, etc. so long as magnification is 1:2 or larger (1:1, 2:1, ... 5:1).

Name: Puffball Mushroom (Lycoperdon perlatum)
Edible: Yes (when white inside)
Location: Long Lake, Brainard Lake Recreation Area, Indian Peaks Wilderness, Colorado

Sometimes you find similar fungi in the 'urban jungle'.  This one reminded me of Epcot.

Well, I don't know what it is, but it is interesting to look at. It was overcast today, so I will try to go back tomorrow when the sun is supposed to be back. The spider off on the center right is a good 2" across.

A toadstool fit for a Prince!  Well, one who's been turned into a frog, anyway.

*While the above photos are JPEG, I just installed Lightroom 5 last weekend to start processing RAW (been shooting mostly JPEG up to now). Love it so far...

No idea what it is but it was found in a pine forest above 6000 feet.

Looks similar to a giant mushroom organism I have in my back yard. It grows every year, in this one corner of my yard. It gets bigger every year...first year I noticed it, it was about two and a half feet in size. Last year, it was about four feet in size. It seems to be rooted VERY deep (several feet), and I've been unable to kill it...looks awesome, like tiers of mushroom shelves, when it is fresh...stinks to high heavens when it gets old and starts to rot. I yank it out every year at that point, but it is incredibly resilient.

First one looks like some kind of cousin to the Elven Cup, although not identical. Beautiful nevertheless. Not sure what the second ones are, but its an excellent shot regardless!

MMM, nasty! :P I'd guess it ain't edible....looks like some kind of slime moss, but may be something else. Huge, too.
