Fungusy-Mungusy Yucks & Dragonfly Tails



One early morning recently, growlmy saw me investigating...


She had her camera handy...and her shadow looms over me, BOL! I think she's making sure I don't try to eat that buzzer.

 It sure was a pretty  and shiny thing, in the bright light.

Closeup!


Well, here I am trying to make Mr D.Fly  fly away!




Another kind of dragonfly, resting on a garden marker stick.



                                                         Now for the yucky stuff...
Does anyone know what kind of fungus that is, it sure is yucky looking! It was growing in the woodsy part of my yard, and when I first saw it, it was almost a lacey & dainty thing. But then it was too rainy to use the camera. Now its so ugly, but it does have a certain 'je ne sais quois' about it!

We never have seen this kind of thing back there in the past, then again this has been a really wet spring and summer, way moister than in many years. Though we didn't get pictures there were even morels this spring! Some peeps would love to have those for their supper...








Now these are growing on and under a stump back there. Kind of beautiful in their own way.





 Ha-ha! Another froggy! This one is furry old, way older than the length of time that growlmy has been married; it came from my grand-pawppy's yard.


Just little old me!
Woofs!

    1. Hi, Charlie!
      Thanks!
      Growlmy went back to check on the 'progress' of that yucky stuff, and it was gone, just a silvery film was left. I guess when the weather dried up so did it!

      Old froggy used to have a mate, but he broke:(

      We do like to eat the puffballs that grow here sometimes, but this is well...Yucky to the max! The smaller fungi are less yucky but not edible either...

  6. That could be...but now it doesn't look like that so much any more...I still do not think it would be a good idea to try to taste test it...
