Mushrooms!

With last year’s flooding I’ve noticed changes at nearly every park I visit this season: MUSHROOMS!

I used to have a very limited supply of mushroom photos.  Now I have surplus.

Here are highlights from a recent visit to Lake Tawakoni State Park.

I didn’t think the photo below was a mushroom but a quick search suggests it’s a cauliflower mushroom – and based on my research, these mushrooms are edible.

Mushrooms

Camera:  Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Big Bertha)
Lens:  My beloved 100 mm macro lens (Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L macro IS)
Date:  June 2016
Equipment:  Manfrotto MK190XPRO3-BHQ2 Tripod
Additional notes:  I photographed the mushrooms using f-stop 32. I wanted as much detail of the entire scene as possible.  The tripod came in particularly handy.
