Woodland Mushroom - Posted on 11/02/2007
While hiking in the woods the other day, I came across this colorful Omphalotus mushroom growing next to a dead tree limb, surrounded by a thick blanket of fallen leaves. I was unable to identify the exact species, but it comes closest to the Jack O'Lantern mushroom, which is poisonous.

I would like to thank everyone for all the kind comments that are being posted. I hope that each of you has a wonderful weekend! -- Kim

    Wow, I've never seen such vivid colors in a mushroom. You really seem to know your mushrooms and plants. I can't tell one mushroom from another. Also, the details in your macro shot are just amazing. Great image!

    What beautiful colors and shapes this has. Since the mushroom is so pretty, you're probably right in thinking it's poisonous. What a nice Autumn photo.
