Mucronella I thought this one was interesting because either there are two species growing side by side or this one is oddly bi-colored. <br />
It comes with a story too.... So, I had to work for a few hours this afternoon but I wanted to spend the morning out. I went to a suburban park nearby to my office. As I was all hunched down framing this shot, two power-walking soccer mom types came around the bend and saw me there. Now I had an umbrella up, because it had started to rain a bit, was squatting down, and wearing my old ratty rainbow striped gloves because they are fingerless, but still warm and I don&#039;t care if people think I&#039;m gay or not and was wearing a messenger bag, so they probably couldn&#039;t see my front much.... I can only surmise what they thought I was doing... but I heard one go woooooooo.. as soon as they got around the next bend.... Why do I somehow think that on Nextdoor somewhere or in some suburban police report there&#039;s a now a story about the crazy, homeless, lesbian taking a poo in the park..

  1. Hahahaaa!.... Nice fungi and story :-D Posted 2 days ago
  2. Haha! I've had people ask if I was "okay" as they find me laying on the ground in the woods, observing things. I've also had parents steer their kids away from me with fearful expressions on their faces as if I am a creeper. Most people see me, and just say, "Ohhh!" and then turn and walk the other way ;P Posted 2 days ago
