During the Augusta Bird Club field trip to Chimney Hollow last week, I took a few more photos of mushrooms, including a striking lavender-colored one. There were several of them near some rotting logs, but it was hard to get a good view of them from above, and we ended up picking one in order to see the gills underneath. Fortunately, we were joined by someone who knows a lot about mushrooms, Tish Folsom. Thanks to Tish for helping to identify the Clitocybe Nuda in particular. Overall, the colors were less dramatic than the mushrooms I photographed last summer, but there was still quite a variety of textures. The new batch of photos are now posted at the Mushrooms photo gallery, and there will be even more in coming weeks, once I finally identify the other species.
