Satin-y Fungi

The sun finally got out of bed today and did his beautiful 'shine' for us. And to give credit to the rain, after several days of wetness these magnificent fungi that look like satin appeared at the base of a dead sweet gum tree.  


  1. This is beautiful and I love your header photo. I am going out tomorrow looking for some fungi.

  2. Beautiful photo and yes, the mushroom does have a nice sheen to it edible? My dad is very mushroom savvy and you would not believe the strange looking fungi one can eat that actually taste pitch black ones that you'd normally think would kill you - those grew in Germany and I would NOT recommend eating any mushroom that you are even slightly doubtful about...
