“Autumn Flowers” – Mushrooms & Toadstools Macro Photography

Just as the mountains, parks and gardens come alive in the spring and summer with beautiful displays of wildflowers, the forest floor displays a stunning range of colour and intricate macro detail in autumn as myriad small (and some not-so-small!) fungi appear in all sorts of places. I am no expert in the field of fungus-ology so rather than adding lots of text I will sprinkle random macro photos of the autumn fungus between other posts I write in the coming weeks, just as the fungi itself pops up in between the trees, ferns and other denizens of Tasmania’s wonderful rainforest areas.
