Black Tuesday

Here's a shot of some mushrooms by Lake Siri, and the moon. None more black, ehh? It's the turning point, frankly.



But the trip was not a total loss, as here we have parallel lines on Cold Run Valley Road. Carmi's Thematic Photographic 210 is Parallelism.



Here are the mushrooms. I believe they are Destroying Angels.







I found a fishing lure caught in a tree.





Other Beesness







P.S. As seen at Aunt Snow's:



UPDATE: Mystery mushrooms from the Saying Yes backyard.

We have a new variety of shrooms in our yard... not they look like smaller versions of yours, but maybe they're smaller because we keep mowing them. We have poofy white ball ones in the front that go from large marble size to "clincher" softball size overnight. YL likes attacking them with her golf clubs.

Gotta love the Renegade Raging Grannies. Frankly, I don't know how there is a woman on the planet who can hear the shit that's being spewed and still vote the way they do.

Jennifer said...

also... I'm going to email you a photo of the small fungi in our backyard. Let me know if this is what your larger versions start out as.

Love the mushrooms, and the bee, and the dark road moving into the darkness ;-)

Oh, and that super dark sky makes me want to write something scary!

Those mushrooms are CRAZY! Damn...such depth, structure and color...I think I need to move, as the stuff that grows out here is just too boring in comparison!

Great choices all. You have such a sense of creativity every time you pick up a camera.

Love those double lines, Thundra. I am tempted to write something scary :
"It was a dark and stormy night..." Yeaaah!

Those are some amazing toadstool pics!

Love those double lines, Thundra
One for each nostril!

They should be attacked with a hot frying pan and butter.

Your red mystery mushroom is a Boletus or Suilus of some kind. The colours are right for B. edulis, but that's associated with pine trees, and your one looks to be growing under oaks.

Smut Clyde said...

The Toad theme continues -- mystery Flower is Linaria vulgaris or Toadflax. See that there flower shape, you know straightaway it's related to teh Snapdragon, I've never seen it in NZ but we have L. purpurea instead.

Please don't ask how long I stared at your first photo, until I realized that's all I'm going to see! Great photos and videos...the grannies too funny!

That tree could have been saved if Americans were allowed to carry fishing lures wherever they went.

Alexia said...

Those first two could be illustrations for one of Lisa's vampire stories - the road one is fantastic.

Cool mushrooms, too.

Smut Clyde said...

I done found you a youtuber.

Loved the road shot and the Raging Grannies.

Lemmy face mushrooms for the win!

I wanna shrink myself and run along the mushrooms path to the lake. Magical!

Be careful you don't step on some fishing hooks, vs!

Duh. I'm a fairy, obviously. We are impervious to fish hooks.

Penis angling conversations are over at the House of Substance.

laura.forestdreams:) said...

((oh, and to Zombie...that IS scary...very scary...))

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

I love the colors of that red and green shroom... what a combo!

Aunt Snow said...

Agreeing with Smut Clyde, the red one is a boletus.
