    Love the clubs. :D What I'd really like is to find some of those bird's nest fungi. I have to do a search to check if they grow up here at all.

    Today we have Gomphus floccosus, the Woolly Chanterelle. It is a good year for them.

    It looks as though something has been nibbling on these ones. I find it strange that animals can eat the poisonous types of fungi and yet we can't. That's why I'd never gather mushrooms - I'd probably kill off the whole family. :eek:

    I have had chanterelles! We have friends who are avid mycologists & we went with them on a mushroom walk. Afterwards, we enjoyed our delicious finds afterwards.

    I am with you, Eileen. I would never go on my own....too risky.

    Chanterelles are a favorite but I too don't eat any of them unless they come from the grocers.

    Thank you to all those that have posted a message. I read them all but it would be to many posts to reply to them all. This is getting long now as we are onto page 6 and I have a lot more to show. So, thanks to you all.

    I doubt if I'd be willing to eat this one (presuming it is edible)as it looks as though it has gone off. If someone served me fried chicken like that I'd send it straight back again. :D :D

    We have Fomitopsis pinicola, Red Banded Polypore, this is a polypore mushroom. Grows on trees. Most will have seen this type of mushroom. The colors vary greatly. I like this one because it looks so fresh and clean.
