Ruined

Ruined Mushroom? Far from perfect, at least.


Can you spot the one with the bite in it?

Last weekend I found these elegant mushrooms outside next to a tree. I've wanted to see these mushrooms for years and finally, they appear in front of my eyes. I guess I might add that I ruined my chance to take great photos because I didn't have my camera with me!

This weekend I am at a swim competition and will be very busy traveling. I won't have computer access so I will do my best to do what I can to visit blogs.

Happy Hunting!

  13. Those are colorful mushrooms, maybe these are poisonous because of the color.

    My children did something like that using play dough :)

  17. I think the nicer looking they are, the more poisonous they are. That's what I learned in school anyway!

  18. I wonder what little creature took a bite and then decided he only wanted one. Great take on the theme!

  22. awww, those are beautiful :)

    Yes, I know I know, I have so many of those moments when I want to snap a photo and there's no camera handy :( And I never seem to learn to keep it with me like the keys, always and forever there :)

  23. Those are beautiful. I've never seen mushrooms like those before.

    Good luck on the competition. Have a safe trip.

  24. I love your photographs! I know practically nothing about mushrooms, but in my book, anything spotted is synonymous with poisonous. Beautiful though.

    Love your count on days away from Switzerland. Seems to me that you will end up there again. Your heart is there.

  25. Fabulous photos.
    I'm happy you went swimming instead of having a bite from that Mushroom.

  27. Amazing mushrooms!!! I just posted a few mushroom shots from a hike this past summer, if you'd like to see them. I am going to enjoy your blog because Switzerland is one of my favorite places on the planet. I found our blog via Tim Rice's "Ramblings".
