John the Fungus Man

One thing that always amazes me is the variety of fungus in the woods. The trees themselves are often dull in comparison - there are only so many shades of brown and green before you start yawning. When walking through the woods, an interesting tree is one that has grown in weird and wonderful shapes. Fungus, on the other hand, is weird and wonderful to start with. There seems to always be a new fungus that I haven't seen (or at least taken a photo of) before. In Highwood we even came across some green puffballs (after the waning batteries finally gave up, of course). Sue gave them a helpful tap with her shoe and sounded revolted when a cloud of green spoors puffed out and drifted on the breeze. My days of poking messy nature are long gone!
