  1. Wild Mushroom

    Wild Mushroom

    I came across this mushroom on one of my nature walks near Tokai Forest in the south suburbs of Cape Town. recognizing it only as a wild mushroom. unknown of its scientific name or if it is eatable or not. I would be grateful if someone in the know could advise the correct identification name...

    One of my favs to photograph and for something that doesn't move it's one of the move tricky in macro, most are so close to the floor it's time to drop like a starfish. fungi photography is like going to war and mostly they win lol, it's mostly ohhh my frickin knees. I'm hopeless at naming...

    Clinging on a tree about 5' or 6' up the trunk. Looks nice but just how safe is it I wonder?

    Big mushroom?

    There were a large number of these in a field at Fishers Green last Saturday but I wouldn't pick them cos I don't know enough about fungi in gneral to know if they were safe or not. This one was around 8" across though.

    Fungi (like lots of people I find most fungi difficult to name and therefore do not try unless I'm sure)

    Fungi growing approx 4feet above ground on the trunk of a living tree. First time I've seen this. Unable to identify the fungi but for scale, the largest caps are about 3 to 4 inches diameter.

    Had some fun in the woods today!!! attempting a new subject for me - Fungi. Opinions (and tips) very welcome for my first attempt. I very soon realised that I should be lying flat on the ground to do this subject justice. The ground was pretty saturated (i.e. wet) so next time I'll take some...
