Mushroom Photos by Nancy Jones

 .....  .....

We have had a very rainy week. And even tho it has not been great for people, the mushrooms are loving it! I took these photos with a visiting scout troop from Lovett. There is always something beautiful in nature to look at even if the day is gray.

Mushrooms found on The Preserve:

  • Hypoxylon Canker of Oak (Biscogniauxiaatropunctata). Both sexual (black) and asexual (white) stages.
  • Brown-toothed Crust (Hydnochaeteolivaceum)
