Weekend Photos

I found the most amazing mushroom this weekend while I was out on one of my 
walks.  It totally fascinated me, with it's strange shape and oozing bright red liquid.
I think it's really beautiful!  Alaska just has an amazing assortment of 
mushrooms....I will definitely have to look this one up 
in a mushroom book.

An old rotten stump was encrusted with this family of fungus.

 These beautiful death mushrooms are everywhere right now.

I came across this nice little spider on a mushroom.  He sat still only 
for a few seconds.  Just a few seconds more and I could 
have captured a better view of him.

I absolutely love this little cluster of mushrooms.  They look like a bouquet of 
flowers.  Autumn is fast approaching in Alaska so I will have
to hurry and take a lot more photos in the next couple of

As usual I hope you enjoy these lovely 
portraits of Alaska.


  1. Hi there Chris, What strange mushrooms you have there! That first one looks like a smoothie gone wrong... ;)
    Also love the spider attacking an alien planet! At least that's what it looked like to me...
    See ya!

  2. Hi Chris,

    What a strange looking mushroom! I have never seen one like this before. It looks like someone spilled some icecream :-)! And that looks really scary!

    Have a lovely day!

  4. I don't know much about mushrooms......but only to say that they are fascinating each and everyone completely different ...ciao Alison
