One of my favourite pastimes is to go foraging for mushrooms. At this time of year pickings are very meagre due mainly to the very cold weather. This year however we have had very little in the way of frosts. I can think of only two since early November. I went mushroom foraging in December to collect wild mushrooms for my Christmas dinner table centre piece. A wild mushroom and chestnut wellington. I was really surprised at how abundant the crop of wild mushrooms were growing. I managed to collect, cepes, horse mushroom, field mushrooms and almond mushroom. However there was also a plethora of deadly mushrooms growing as well. The image shows fly agaric which you should stay well clear of even to the point of not getting the microscopic pores on any of the edible mushrooms you are picking.
I took this shot with my Canon camera and I have a cable attached to my flash to enable me to move the flash head around to get a better shot rather than just the ubiquitous head on flash.
