I’ve found a wonderful area of woodland for finding and photographing mushrooms and fungi.
The trouble is, where you find the most fungi is where you also find a ton of mosquitos. I’d guess the photographs on this page cost me at least three or four bites each!
But I’m not complaining. I love being able to get out into the woods and be surprised by a mushroom or fungus I’ve never, ever seen before.
And mushrooms are so fleeting… there one day and then dying back a couple of days later.
The odd mosquito bite – or two or three – is a small price to pay.
