Just found this one today. I caught a glimpse of it out of the corner of my eye through the ivy, and I didn't even recognize it as a mushroom at first because it was so big! It was the size of a dessert plate! I took a picture of the sign behind it for Baird Hall for scale.
Some amazing colors coming up. The orange finger things (sorry for the quality of the picture) were like highlighter orange! These were growing by the spot where I found the candy caps.
The color isn't quite what it should be for these guys, but they were kind of translucent and they looked like they were filled with a bright yellow light.
I like to tell people that this one looks like a pile of spaghetti. It's growing on the hill behind Oxtoby.
I found these on the hill on the way to Holy Grounds. Isn't it weird looking? It's called a black elfin saddle and is apparently edible, but it seemed a little too insubstantial to deal with.
I was so excited when I found this 'cuz I've always wanted to see one. It was growing by the entrance to the parking lot in front of Scott Hall. I think it's commonly known as an earth star.
Hope you enjoyed! Next time you go on a walk or a hike, keep an eye out for these guys. They're interesting and weird and will make your time outside that much more meaningful!
