Autumn means fungi season! It looks like the hot dry summer might be slowly releasing its grip, and the forest can breathe a sigh of relief as the cooler weather kicks in.
Autumn really is my favourite time of year to get out and explore (and photograph!) Tasmania. The fungi is a huge highlight as are the deciduous fagus leaves.
On a recent Bay of Fires trip, we stopped by the rainforest at St Colomba Falls. I thought it would be a little early for the fungi, but here and there it was beginning to appear.
And on a related note, I discovered the following guide to Tasmanian fungi at Salamanca Market yesterday – the FungiFlip!
Along the lines of the TreeFlip and EucaFlip, it is a waterproof, fold up field guide. The fungi version only really lists scientific names, but there are a great many fungi listed. Once you have found the name of your fungi, more detailed information is only a google search away.
