We had a lot of rain here in Northeastern Pennsylvania this year and the mushrooms keep growing. I had a busy week and didn’t get a chance to post any blogs but I did find time to get out and find some mushrooms.macro   (5 of 9)

The woods are filled with many species of mushrooms of all colors and shapes. I love finding the edible ones but also enjoy seeing the beauty of  the species that are growing  in our woods. macro mushrooms (21 of 23)

And I always take my camera along to see if I can find anything else that may make for a good photograph. Yesterday I found this slug on a mushroom and had him do some posing for me. I will have to admit it’s hard to try and find a lot oof beauty in these critters. macro slug 085 (1 of 1)

The forest floor is also strewn with these unusual plants, indian pipes. They are often mistaken for a fungus but they are not.  They are white because they have no chlorophyll. macro indian pipes (1 of 1)

And of course it is still blueberry or swamper season and i was able to eat a lot of berries while looking for mushrooms.

 

I sure do love the summers. This is a link to some more photographs of the many mushrooms and a few  insects I found on my hikes this macro   (7 of 9)week. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/mushrooms-and-macro-july-16-17-2015
