Squirrel eating a mushroom in Bent Tree

There’s been discussion on the Bent Tree NextDoor website about gathering edible mushrooms.  I wouldn’t know which ones are safe to eat, or which ones are poisonous, or which ones are “magic mushrooms”.  But, I appreciate the interesting colors, shapes, and sizes of the various fungi I come across in Bent Tree.  Some are tiny, some are really big, some are beautiful, some are funny or weird-looking… Here are some of the photos I’ve taken over the years in Bent Tree.  Click the thumbnails below for larger images.
