Funky Mushrooms

I spotted this group of mushrooms a few weeks ago. 

The first set of images was made on August 31st.






They look like bread dough. 

This second set of images was just made tonight, Sept 9th except for the first one in the set which was made Sept 7th. I'm posting it so you can see the tops as best I could show them. 

It is amazing to me the change. 








They keep growing and evolving and the color is changing. The stems on some of them must be 1-2 inches thick. 

I'll have to continue to watch them to see what happens.

Make sure you stop over to visit to see more great images of the great outdoors.

PS I'm glad for the articulating screen and live view on my new camera, but was still on my knees...ouch.

Wow! They look so different now! Great shots -- you must have been on your knees to take some of them.

That change you've shown us is fascinating.

Oh! My! The night fairies can have a wonderful buffet spread on these.
Thanks for all the extra effort (my knees are hurting just thinking about it) to bring us this great series.... just beautiful photos. We stumbled on a whole bunch of wonderful mushrooms when we were in Skagway and I took some pics, but not this good ... and of course I didn't get to see them progress That is so interesting. Great post.

I like your mushroom series. They are beautiful shots! I have never seen yours yet.
Turkey Tail and Orange Peel are two of my favorite mushrooms to photograph.

They turned inside-out!

What an interesting metamorphosis! They do look like bread dough at first. Weird.

if there's one thing I love seeing it's unusual images like this. Fungi rocks! you must have an awfully good camera :-)

That is quite a change. It's interesting how mushrooms sometimes just pop up!

You've been mushroom watching! :)
Nice to see the changes.

Yeah, does look like bread dough in the first set.

Once they disintegrate, there'll probably be new ones. I'm watching them with you.

Nice pics, Felicia.

Quite sculptural! Yes, I can see bread dough. We've been eating maitake (I make it into soup). Mushrooms can look funny.

You're a better woman than me. I passed by some mushrooms on a walk with my camera and was too lazy to try for shots. These are really great!! Thanks for sacrificing to get us these images. :)

Fantastic diverse groups of mushrooms. They all strike my fancy.
Rajesh said…
Wonderful shots of mushrooms. The non-poisonous ones are tasty to eat.
Rambling Woods said…
Oh great shots and I love the progression. I know it is hard to get some of those shots... Or for me, getting up again is the challenge.... Lol..... Michelle
Florence said…
How interesting! Do you know what kind of mushroom they are?
