    Went for a hike today and the variety and diversity of fungi was fabulous. I took a few shots but could have spent much more time photographing them...

    Very Cool Ron!,

    Finally some stuff I can actually name:

    The top left is a mature earthball, Scleroderma citrinum.

    The one on the top right is a Hericium sp. (abietis probably if it is a fir tree) - all the species in that group are 100% safe-pick gourmet edibles and there is nothing else in the world that looks anything like it (up on wood with white teeth hanging down). They have a very pleasant seafood flavor kind of like mild scallops. If you can get back to it it is definitely worth the time!!

    I think the bottom left is the psychodelic Gymnopilus spectabilis but there are a bunch of things to confuse it with and it could easily be a deadly species instead just looking at the pic.

    I suck at corals....

    The last white polypore would be Oligoporus caesius if as you said in the PM it turns blue.

    Amazing pictures, and your photographic skills are really good Ron. The natural earthy tones in all the pictures are really beautiful. Seems that it was a really pleasant hiking.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge mycologist and make us learn something new.
