When it comes to showing more of my favourite shots I couldn't resist having a little fungi,
|Jew's Ear Fungus (Auricularia auricula) - 2007|
This grows on old wood and is soft and velvety to the touch. What's more it's edible and recipes for Jew's Ear Soup exist. I've never been brave enough to try this.
|Parasol Mushroom (Macrolepiota procera) - Tresco, 2008|
Apparently this is also edible but beware there is a very similar 'shaggy' mushroom that causes stomach problems.
In 2014 I found this on on the grass verge between Kirklevington and Yarm. Having seen its appearance change from day to day I doubt that it is edible and I'm not sure what it is.
Two days later it looked like this.
|One to leave alone|
Today I had a different kind of fun and took my first photo of the year - somehow I think it mighty figure in my year end favourites too.
It was the light that caught my attention. - the sky was black and not as blue as it appears.
