So i decided to make general off-topic mushroom thread where I guess everyone is invited to post pictures of mushrooms he finds.

I'm not a mushroom expert so every picture of mushrooms i post, i very likely won't know what it is, and i probably found it while anting

This ones are growing on infamous hornet nest in my neighborhood, nobody dares come near that stump for fear of his own life ( damn them hornets)

These ones i found near vineyard where soil is 50/50 soil/sand

Up close picture of small one

Now this one was found in my orchard after rain, so it must`ve grown to its current size ( around 10 cm? ) in less than a day, looks like those spongy morel mushrooms to me

"Trail" of mushrooms also found in my orchard

Been a while, I forgot to post last batch of shrooms I found, which was probably a little more interesting

First is this bunch of mushrooms on some old trees

I also found this cluster of giant white puffbals ( that are actually edible, but good luck persuading my family to try eating it). They are quite big, and can grow even bigger. They were also very spongy

And last but not least... This rather unusual looking mushroom that I found near woodline. It seems to have legs and the actual mushroom is on some pedestal

That last one is a type of puffball as well. The first one looks like a species of oyster mushroom.

 

I take a lot of mushroom pictures these days, they can be found over at http://inaturalist.org

Nice pics! There's certainly some interesting mushrooms out there that's for sure. I was fond of little gold ones for a while as a teenager but that's a different story! Lol ;)

While browsing my pics, I found pics I must've skipped while uploading. The mushrooms grew on wooden handle of hoe and were size of pinky fingernail.

Ahh an easy one this is Schizophyllum commune  the split gill mushroom. A cool but very common fungus.

Thx for all these pics ... have recently gotten interested in mushrooms was thinking mushroom hunting + ant hunting could go together well. Also just started using some Lion's Mane as a supplement, we'll see if it works as advertised and I soon develop super human mental powers!  ;)

That last one is one of the earth star puffballs.

Can't see the underside of these but based on the growth form...check out Meripilus species. The underside should have pores.

Consider Amanita vittadinii

Looks like Geastrum fornicatum
