I have found a good 'shroom nearby for quite a while, I'll have to try harder!
Thought I'd posted this one yonks ago. Must be losing the plot!

From the same flower bed as my previous shot. They (Samsung have most of the building) seem to have a slight 'infestation' - counted a good half dozen new ones...
3 snapshots from Skipton today.
I have no idea what this thing is. It has pushed its way through the shingle in my back garden. It's growing daily and is now starting to scare the dogs!
Here are a couple of mine.
Not sure what this one is.
that second one is where Big Ears lives

Another wooly chanterelle? One of several that have sprung up in our communal front garden.
The reflections are due to it being full of water after a rainstorm.
At risk of going slightly snap happy:

Some amazing fungi here Enjoying this thread a lot!
The top one was growing under a sheet of black plastic.
I went for a walk today and was muttering about the lack of decent specimens when I literally fell over these
There were whole swathes of them around the base of a silver birch tree. I thought they were rather beautiful and when I saw some more interesting shapes growing out of an old tree stump further along the road, I thought they were more of the same. No. This next lot were actually really disgusting - slimy and attracting flies like nobodies business. I'm still gagging a bit just looking at them because they didn't smell too sweet either:
They seem to have spread beyond the tree stump and into the verge:
By this time I'd lost my glasses in the depths of my rucksack so I took this picture thinking it was one of those puffball mushrooms that someone had kicked:
Closer inspection revealed it to be a half eaten bread roll.
Lovely work, especially number 4.
Zombie thread time!
Saw this fungus on a dead tree stump.

Not sure what it is. Looks like insect-chewed examples of Split Gill fungus, Schizophyllum commune, but I wouldn't put money on it. Other suggestions gratefully accepted!
