Color, Click, Capture Photography
With the second week for the Color, Click, Capture Photography challenge already here, I found myself having a really hard time picking just one photo to post. This week’s color is orange. The fruit, the sun, flowers, fall leaves, tropical fish, coral and bad spray tans all come to mind when I think of this color. But, for my picture, I chose some really cool fungus. Check out the first week of RED photos if you missed it.
I’ve spent quite some time researching this, and think maybe I have identified these mushrooms as: Omphalotus illudens: The Jack O’Lantern Mushroom.
I saw these while running my favorite wooded trail. Yes, I actually stopped in my tracks, messing up my time for my run, and used my phone to take these pics. I’ve always been a huge geek when it comes to nature. 🙂
However, while doing my research, I found that these glow in the dark! I wish I would have seen that, or better yet got a picture of it! If I see them again, you better believe I’ll be camping out next to them, camera ready! Here are some more awesome mushrooms from our yard.
