As the title states, once morel season starts I'm usually out in the woods at least once a week if time permits. I like to post pics of different types of fungus that I find and about everything else that I find while I'm out. I'll start with my first morel of this season, yep walked for a few hours just to find this loner! Enjoy as I update throughout the year with fungi, wildlife and scenery.

Thanks friend! I like seeing them out there, what kills me about them though is that I can be struggling to get up a big steep hill, and about 3/4 the way up I'll find one just sitting there chillin acting like it wasn't a problem, lol.

I will be adding tons of pics throughout the year, especially when all the greenery gets filled out and I start making my treks back to the waterfall's. I do this to keep an eye out on what mushrooms tend to come out at what times, regardless of what they are, just kind of a pictorial record of my area.

And thanks for the nomination skywatcher!

Didn't have much time this week to be trekking through the woods before it got sloppy, and will be for awhile after all this rain we are getting. Didn't find any morels but there were other mushrooms starting to come out.

2 and 3 look like Cerioporus sqaumosus, Pheasant Back. Good edible if you get them young. Also rumored to often be found near morels.

They are, and pretty good to eat. They will be out in full force, I'll be sure to get pics as there will be tons of them!

Cerioporus sqaumosus, Pheasant Back, what an appropriate name. Such a visually appealing nushroom as well.

Mushinist, your photography skills are great. I could almost nominate this whole thread for excellent photo illustration.

It makes this a pleasure to look through...................

Skywatcher, you are too kind!

Most of the time I'm griping about the camera on this phone being junk lol. I'm glad you are liking them though!

I've been absent for a few days while I was mushroom hunting with my parents in Illinois, I wasn't worried about taking pics of the diversity of fungi just mainly due to where I go I sadly am not supposed to be there lol. So mainly just morels, pheasant backs and elephant ears.

A few more pheasants, and these things were everywhere, too many to photograph.

And my old fishing grounds (Spoon river)

I have been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to get out there myself. This thread is making me want to get out there.

I love the pics but open few of them, as they don't display on my browser because the pixel dimensions are bigger than my screen.   Something is lost, aesthetically, when you have to scroll up and down and side to side to see the whole image.

I know what you mean and sorry for that, I use my phone almost exclusively and it doesn't do that on the phone. I'll try uploading differently from now on!
