    I wish I knew what I was looking at . What is the medium the little red jobs are growing in ?

    A very mature small puffball - I'm not sure what species, since none of my guide books have pictures of puffballs at this stage of growth.

    It definitely looks like some kind of Amanita. Maybe Amanita abrupta?

    Not a hunter, just gatherer and 5 mouths to feed. Once or twice a week cook something from shrooms.
    Other days it's horse, fish or just a big salad.
    But if counting the cost, shrooms and horse are free, during summer months the fish is also free (don't count the price of gear and kayak :D )

    The black morels have been popping up in good numbers in the Ozarks.

    I've always had trouble finding Morels .I think that was a contributing factor to learning other types of edible fungi. At least there is very little competition for the less well.known .
    Kind of like asking the chunky girl to the prom , lot less chance of being rejected and then you're surprised how you're having a better time then the guy who brought the prima Donna . Except I'd still rather have Morels .

    The blacks are still going. They will probably stop soon. I saw that baby blonde last weekend so I'm hoping I can pick some blondes tomorrow. I have a friend coming in that has never hunted morels before so I am gonna take him to as many of my holes as we can cover while he is here. I saved some blacks in a new spot I found the other day. I'm gonna take him there first and let him get an eye for em. Then we are gonna hit it hard. I'm still waiting on the giant blondes they are my favorite.

    Me and my buddy had a good hunt this weekend. We found quite a few blondes starting up. But we left em because they were still small. I let my buddy pick a few blondes though. I sent him home with all we picked.

    Here are some unidentified polypore fungi (the less mature ones have a purplish hue to them).

    Here is a Spiny Puffball (Lycoperdon echinatum). It's a bit early for them, but they're here nonetheless.

    I'm pretty sure it is a type of slime mold.

    From what I could find, it might be a Stemonitis genus slime mold.

    Found a bunch of indigo milk caps (Lactarius indigo) and was the first time finding/noticing/identifying them....looking for mushrooms has become a problem for me I think....can't seem to make my way through the woods because of the constant searching haha :) Though it's edible and opinions seem to vary, I didn't eat any....maybe soon. The juice is crazy bright blue when broken/cut...very cool!

    Found this coral type mushroom that was glowing in a sliver of sunlight....not sure what it is and though it kind of looks like a crown coral (which I've picked/eaten in the past) but it wasn't growing on wood. Not sure if there was a log just under the sand, but I've yet to determine what it is....my google fu has failed me at this point

    Edit: thinking it's maybe Clavulina cristata

    Picked some black trumpets this evening

    Petrified Oyster? It feel like driftwood, but heavier.

    Trying to ID these little golden mushrooms, that have sprung up all over the neighborhood this year, usually near an old tree stump. Honey fungus?

    Good luck, those suckers are hard to see! I have a few spots that I go back to and find some here and there, but not near as many as last year so far. Have been exploring new areas (bottomland beech groves) and have had a little more success, but it takes some hard looking to spot them. Good thing is, once you find a spot then you know where to go next time :D

    I think I found one a couple of months ago but had no idea what it was. I'll try to find the picture.

    bacpacjac Yeah that looks like Armillaria... pretty common find in urban areas... just dont confuse Death Cap for Armillaria like those Cali people did.

    Not sure what this guy is. Maybe a "blusher?"

    I couldn't find an exact match in my field guide.

    There were a bunch of them around, and they smelled terrible!

    Edit - here it is the next day.

    While out picking black trumpets, I found these which are what I believe to be Jelly babies (with a black trumpet in the background)

    This is a great analogy @riverjoe ... started my morning off with a solid laugh. Hopefully you find your "Super Model" patch of Morels next Spring!

    Chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius)

    I've found a great spot. I intend to go back next year too!
