I like mushrooms and I like finding fungus of any type to photograph, so much so that we both keep a close eye out for it and are almost as excited by its discovery as we are when a deer makes an appearance…well OK, maybe excited isn’t really the word.

I know absoulutely nothing about fungus and, having had a root around the internet, it would appear that fungus identification is a pretty complicated art – so I just decided that these must be plate fungus – no idea if that even exists in the fungus world.

Obviously these fungus were interesting because of their size and nutty brown top
