I love the fly agaric mushrooms with their red and white spots. Someone posted a photo on my village facebook page of a mushroom they'd spotted near the cricket pitch. Of course, I had to go and take a photo myself. I found two other women down there taking photographs. The power of facebook!
There seems to be an abundance of fungi in people's gardens or in the woods at the moment.
I really enjoy taking their pictures but know little about them. I'm just going to have to buy that fungi book!
