  1. Thank you for the robust process you use to photograph fungi, it's hard work but extremely useful! Posted one year ago
    1. You're welcome Ferdy, and thanks :). I'm continually learning about how to document fungi and hope to add some spore prints and other things this coming season. Posted one year ago
      1. With spore prints do you mean from the microscope? Posted one year ago
        1. I do want to get photos of spores using microscopy, but that's not what I meant...I meant that I want to get spore prints (you place the caps on paper, they release spores, and then you can takes pics of the spores, etc. This info aids in ID). So, I would be able to add photos of the spore print, in addition to shots of the individual spores. Posted one year ago
          1. Very interesting, looking forward to that. Looks like you have an eye for detail after all. Posted one year ago
            1. Hahaha! Maybe a wee bit. Posted one year ago
  2. What a beautiful shot, you can almost "see" the individual cells. Such texture and color. Very fresh. Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks, Erin! It was in perfect condition :). Posted one year ago

''Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca'', commonly known as the false chanterelle, is an orange funnel-shaped mushroom which has been confused at times with the true chanterelles, however recent work shows its affinity lies with the boletes in the order Boletales.
