There is Fungus among us!

As the temperature drops and the light fades during these glorious days of autumn flowers fade but mushrooms pop out in droves.


Montreal is home to quite a few nature parks and an arboretum and these are perfect spots to visit before the snow wipes them off for another year. 2020 seems to be bountiful in a huge number and species of fungi, on the ground and on trees. I am thrilled to find many types of mushrooms I had never seen before: amethyst coral, bird's nest mushrooms, tiny shrooms growing on a pine cone, and many many more. All of the shots you see below were taken with my Panasonic Lumix G9 + Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens. Some with extension tubes.


I urge you to take your macro lens, small flashlight, and a small tripod out for a walk to see what you can find before it's too late.
