I am still on about fungi and these photos were taken near Wombat Station in the Wombat Forest. If you rug up and go for a walk at this time of year you should always see some fungi. They come in all shapes and sizes. What we see is just the showy top or fruiting bodies and underneath there is a lot of work going on. The rest of the fungi is breaking down organic matter and recycling nutrients. They are vital for healthy ecosystems. Some fungi are food for wallabies.
It is time to book in for a fungi foray if you are interested in learning more about fungi. Each year when fungi are at their peak Alison Pouliot runs a series of workshops, where you can learn how to photograph fungi or where to find fungi.
Check out her website to see the list of courses available.
These courses are very popular so don’t delay booking in.
