Fungi – Twisted Sister Track (part 1)

The Twisted Sister Track is a short walk through a stunning patch of forest. “Twisted Sister” is the name given to a giant stringbark in the area that was earmarked for logging. The track was originally tagged out by conservationists protesting this logging and is now an official Parks & Wildlife track, and the area is now listed as World Heritage. It is an absolute feast for the fungi enthusiast too and I come here basically every autumn at least once 🙂 Check out Environment Tasmania‘s website for more details on the track, but for now, here’s some fungi highlights!

I’ll start with my favourite from the day. Spent a LOT of time lining and lighting this one up. Loved every minute of it too 🙂

 

Pretty sure this ones called Hygrocybe mavis, but there may have been a name change recently…

 

Maybe a Hygrocybe pseudograminicolor. I bet that’s what you were thinking too 😉

 

Another shot I took a lot of time with and therefore another favourite from the day!

 

Another “behind the scenes” shot composing the shot above.

 

Fungi and bokeh, a good combination 🙂

 

Another contender for shot of the day, definitely in the top 2 🙂

There’s more to come, stay tuned for part 2 from this trip…
