No, Daisy, we're looking for mushrooms!

This, Daisy, look for them. On the ground!
As ever, Daisy is up in the trees during our walks. I tried to explain, we're hunting for mushrooms today. Buster had been out all night, and Dorah and Sadie were having cat naps.
After our August rain, and this cool week, the mushrooms are blossoming. All sorts of colours, reds, white, brown, yellow and orange; some sort of harbinger of colours to come.

It is difficult getting a good photo of the mushrooms, sometimes just setting the camera on the ground makes it easier.
I tried to show Daisy what we were looking for. Someone or something had kicked this wee mushroom over. It's easy to smuck them.

She prefers the trees.
She is so joyful,
flinging herself upwards!
This is on our island in
the wetland.

Camera-Critters #284

Like a well-trained dog, she's right there with me.

We went out into the wetland
There were insects in this log.
I think our bear
whacked it about somewhat.
Daisy was impressed.


I found an amazing selection of mushrooms, without or in spite of Daisy's help!

What a great variety of mushrooms you found! Mushrooms seem to range from scary looking to beautiful!
Daisy's toes are cuties! She's a beauty even if she didn't help you hunt!
(Thanks for stopping by my blog today!)

Daisy looks like she enjoyed herself. I found some mushrooms today, too. And a Puff-ball. Deb

Kay said...

Wow! So many different kinds. But do you know which are edible?

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I don't know, Kay, and I don't eat any. We have a great local store, as well as many local farmers, with organic foods, veggies, bison, lamb, etc., and I eat what the professional farmers grow. It's safer!!!!

Bill Nicholls said...

Fungus, so how much is edible.

Red said...

You have a surprising number of different species of mushrooms. I leave mushrooms alone although I realize there is some interesting things about them.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Nary a clue, Bill. I just photograph them!

That is quite the variety. We had so much rain this past week that there are mushrooms popping up in my flower garden.
