Dark Light

Golden Trumpet

I think the best way to describe this little orange fungi is: gregarious.

Witches Butter

Many of these jelly mushrooms are edible, but look at this thing: would you want to eat THIS?

Violet Fairy Cup

The little kid in me can definitely imagine a bunch of fairies sitting around this cup, enjoying whatever fairy libation fairies enjoy...

Violet Coral Fungus

A purple gem on the forest floor. I knew that fungus can come in all sorts of amazing colors, but coming across them yourself is a completely different experience.

Black Witches Butter

Just another jelly fungus that is totally edible and totally not palatable to me (at least visually!)

Black-foot Parachute

It's not every day you see a tiny mushroom growing right out of a leaf stem... definitely a first for me.
mini puff balls on wood

Stump Puffball

If I was making up the common name of this fungi, I would call it Pearly Puffball.
White snow fungus on branch

Snow Fungus

I just love the common name of this fungus, probably because I really love snow.
