Very hard fungus that grows on dead, standing trees. It often resembles a hoof.
When this was flying, I thought this was a moth. But when I saw it move on the leaf, I didn't have a clue....
This damselfly seemed to want to be photographed! I've always had trouble getting close enough to get a good shot, and this one just landed on my pants and stayed there 'til I said "OK" when I was finished taking the pics. Strange.
Black heads with white covers. The entire patch was about 4 cm across.
Small fungus growing on wood. When young it has a browish cap with darker brown scales, and orange/yellow gills. When mature, the top is grayish white, and the faded gills turn brownish from the brown spores.
Fungus with a fuzzy upper side, and accordion-like gills beneath. Grows on dead wood. These specimens are hydrated; when dried out they can resemble seashells in shape.
White flowers with reddish-purple centers on a tall thin stalk. Growing in a disturbed area alongside of the road.
Plants up to 2 meters tall with broad leaves, lined from stem to tip, like hosta. Green flowers at the top of the plant. These were growing in a moist area along a stream.
Medium to large mushroom with a grayish/brownish cap that looks silky, and often has tiny white lines where insects have worked their way inside. The sturdy stem is white, as is the spore print. The gills are broad and white. Platterfuls grow on/near well rotted wood. They are good to eat, and many denizens of the forest agree.
This was growing near the lakeshore. It's about 10-12 cm tall. It may be near the end of its growing season, as others nearby had no petals.
Very large and beautiful fern with brown spore-bearing fronds.
A slime mold that doesn't look like much, but is pretty when viewed closely.
This cup fungus is very small, but I was already on the ground taking another photo when it caught my eye. The second photo shows what it looks like from one's knees.
This fungus grows on well-rotted wood. It turns black as the spores mature.
There are spines on the berries and on the twigs. It was growing near a lake, mixed in with a lot of other undergrowth.
I found this little guy while hunting for mushrooms. He was curled up tight just like his mom told him, and never flinched while I took his picture.
Orangish tan fungus growing on dead wood. It has hexagonal pores underneath.
Brown cup fungus, difficult to get to species without a microscope. It grows on the ground. This specimen has a little friend.
