I am not a fungi



Hey its that time when I never stop looking for mushrooms.

video

my mouth is dry..







This is yesterdays loot. Top picture, pretty, large and good but getting old, second picture large and beautiful scaly polypore but inedible though suitable for making broth just texturally rough, everything after that is good to go, oh except for the yellowish agrocybes, hard to tell which ones arent poison, and the rest just taste bitter. The last shot is my delicious harvest of bountiful ladies. Oh....very, very first picture - the big boy of the lot. Super fresh super ready for the grill.




Plus a snake. Cold so it moved real slow

Very cool. I would be too afraid to forage for 'shrooms....with my luck, I'd pick the wrong ones, even after careful instruction.

BEautiful photo of the snake.
