View 146: Mushrooms and Ferns


Mushrooms and Ferns photographed at the Beaver Lake Nature Center.

Went out looking for autumn color last week.  My area is still far from peak.  Some trees showed color here and there.  Overall, I did not get much from the Beaver Lake Nature Center near Baldwinsville, New York.  When out looking for landscapes do not overlook micro landscapes like these mushrooms and ferns I noticed on a fallen log next to where I was photographing.  As you can see by the green ferns, at the time I took this, autumn had a ways to go.  However, we did have a wide spread frost over the weekend which should spur autumn along.

  1. That turned out really beautiful!
    Are you any closer to getting a macro lens yet?

    Blogs about fungus seem to be mushrooming today! 😉 Have you been over to Gerry’s place where she’s been sorting through a mushroom mystery?

    We’ve had lots of fungus activity lately too, with a wet, cool but not cold fall so far. Glad to see you made it home safely!

    Your picture is very good. It has a fine composition and a real ‘autumn-mood color palette’.
    When it comes to classification of the fungi it lacks details. My first guess is: Galerina paludosa, but we need more details to be sure. I my guess is right: Don’t eat them, they are poisonous.


  5. cool shot, it does still look so green over there. Hope you are having a great day today.

    Lush, dreamy landscape. The mushrooms look tender and caressable, as if they could not possibly hurt you. Baby coral snakes are probably cute, too.

    And a shout out to Karma, who got you to visit me!

    I saw one on Saturday also, but it’s nothing comparing to yours.

    I love this one. I actually prefer these little worlds. Now if only it would cool off enough for me to make my way back into the woods.
