Fungi in Namadgi National Park

Lovely to look at. But don’t touch it. Don’t pick it. Don’t eat it.

There’s a lot of fungi in and around Canberra. A lot. You don’t need me to tell you not to eat it. Well, you might. Don’t eat it. Any of it.

That aside, it sure is pretty.

Why was I taking photographs of fungi?

Well, on Sunday we decided to do one of our favourite walks – Booroomba Rocks. Booroomba Rocks’ value for effort is usually excellent – for a quick cardio workout you get rewarded with some extraordinary views.

Sometimes.

Sometimes the cloud is just right and it’s like you’re walking on top of it.

Sometimes … well, sometimes you get this.

Stunning... but not much of a view.

So, rather than focusing on what we couldn’t see, I turned my attention to what we could:

Well, hello.

Well, hello.

Hiding… from the poor photographer

Okay, this isn't fungi.

Okay, this isn’t fungi.

 

Are you a death cap?

It's no surprise that I see so many when thousands of species exist

In the meantime, don’t eat the mushrooms!

    Tara has fun looking at fungi, but take her advice, don’t try and eat it…

  2. Its alarming the number of poisonings we’ve had in the Berra of late. It seems strange to me that people would pick and eat them, but nice one reminding us. Love your pics, and I’ll be sure to check out the walk, looks beautiful. Wishing you a wonderful rest of week and a warm weekend. :)
