Macro Friday

I really will get back to critter photos soon. But lately, I've been a bit fungus-obsessed. Unlike most of my obsessions, mushrooms don't move. And they are around virtually anytime I look. And they are nearly infinitely variable. And often bright colors.
Soon I hope to be able to identify some of these mushrooms, too.
I have a book on the way.

So, without further preamble, here are today's msuhroom macros.

This is the bottom of the bright orange shelf-type one from the other day.

I think these look like shells.

I love the scalloped edge.

This one must be good to eat, at least if you're a slug or bug.

These look like flowers to me.

As always, you can click on any of the photos for a closer look.
