Parasol

Parasol mushroom, of sorts: 13 November 2018

Of all the photos I’ve taken of fungi this season, I rate this as the best. Shame I can’t identify it with absolute certainty. It’s a parasol, that’s all I will say.

Why is it ‘perfection’? Cos it’s not yet nibbled by bird, insert nor squirrel, and no tree has dropped debris upon it, and the rain hasn’t spoiled it. I’m guessing it’s newly risen that day.

    How about because the photographer also framed it perfectly?

    I’d forgotten about how fragile these little fungi are. I imagine you mostly find ones that are past their prime or have been damaged by, as you say, being eaten or having things dropped upon them. What wonderful serendipity to find a big parasol like this in such perfect condition! And I agree with Dale: you did a great job with the photography, too. Nice catch!

    I had to come back to your last “mushroom post” to share with you a video I saw on Facebook not ten minutes ago… Thought of you, immediately!
