On the fungi trail with the X30
10

This is the time of year when every fallen tree in the woods has its crop of fungi fruiting bodies.

These with the X30, the second and third images using macro setting.

I was using a Slik Sprint Mini tripod and threaded cable release.

Do you pick them?  and which ones are the "good ones"?  ha ha.  We can buy the good ones legally here in canada now.

Pick them? I don't even touch them. Most of them are poisonous and I don't know which is which.

Alot of them (around here anyways), are edible and very tasty.  Some are killers, and some are enjoyable for a totally different reason.  I am into survival practices in the backcountry as I am in the "woods" alot.  I know some of the fungi types that are perfectly safe in our area.  YMMV.  Great images though.  Eat the right ones and the smurfs come out on top of them too!

Nice photos of these nice specimens! Fungi, bugs, wild plants and flowers are the biggest part of what I have photographed for years. As an old biology major I am naturally drawn to the dark side of the trail.
