Oysters in the woods

Pleurotus umbrinus

These oyster mushrooms were collected and illustrated at the weekend. We were staying in Preston Montford and enjoyed some lovely autumnal fungi foraging.

I chose this specimen because the group of mushrooms on the bark looked like they were posing for a family portrait.

My first post!
I'm going to put some things from the past year up, and then add to it as I do some more.

Various leaves, all different shades of green.
