More mushrooms…

I had to take a close up of the original group of mushrooms just to emphasise the size of some of the chanterelles (Cantharellus cibarius.) Some of the largest I’ve found.

I’d decided to walk to boules in the hope of finding a few more mushrooms to add to those I’d collected earlier. I’d been on the point of regretting my decision when my ‘mushroom eyes’ zoomed in on a splash of egg yolk yellow at the base of the talus.  A bit of furtling amongst the cut grass uncovered a lovely harvest.

The horse mushrooms (Agaricus arvensis) were in a friend’s field where the grass is kept relatively short by grazing sheep.
