No Train to Catch

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.


Wombat Forest Fungi

Wombat Forest would be one of the best places to go to see fungi. Remember if you don’t know which fungi is which, don’t eat them. Some don’t give you a second chance.
