Moorhen Chicks

Moorhen chicks and their parents foraging near the lake edge at my work (a large state university in Queensland, Australia)   


Delicate mushrooms/toadstools observed amongst will taking our puppy for a walk. 


 Puff ball specimens observed after a few days of rainy humid weather  

Plate fungi spotted on a tree stump on a mid-morning wall at work. Such vibrant shades of orange! 



On two morning walks over the Australian Labour Day long weekend, I spotted a collection of stinkhorn fungi, Astorae Rubra. The specimens were spotted amongst bark chips in flower beds in a coastal environment (sandy soil). There had been a number of afternoon storms (a sign in Queensland that summer is faster approaching) in the previous week teamed with warm humid weather. Perfect conditions for fungal growth.
