They remind me of creatures from under the sea!
Ruthie you Have such a magical eye. These pics are fab. Xx
Just beautiful! I'd like to believe it is a fairy pup. :)
I love these! I've always wanted to know more about mushrooms. So fascinating! What a grand variety you have...
Exquisite photos, Ruthie. You are so lucky to have spotted a faery pup! Have you read *The Faery Flag* by Jane Yolen? It is her short story about the young laird, Jamie MacLeod from Skye whose dog crossed a bridge one foggy night into Faerie. You may know of other stories about the faery shawl of Dunvegan Castle.
Beautiful piccies. They look so succulent! ... :0)

How wonderful, so many different shapes, textures and colours, I bet you do some lovely drawings of them.

I've just recently started really looking closely at many everyday things, like mushrooms and insects. They really are beautiful, aren't they? Though I haven't encountered such magnificent mushrooms as these.Your photos are fabulous!

Wonderful fairy fungus. These are great photos Ruthie!;) I like the fairy pup about to hide behind a huge mushroom...These are good forms. I use to like to draw mushrooms with oil pastels. They have such lovely textures and colour.Best wishes dear friend.xxx
Everything is still so green there in Scotland! It is all browns and grays here. But at least it's not white!
this post overflows with one of my favorite parts of life, the wee fungi beings. I love your photos, they bring me joy!
