Default A great small find

This saturday we had some nice weather for the first time since... well, long. I decided to go out and pick mushrooms. I also brought the camera. Or maybe I went out to take pictures, and brought the basket... Anyway, I was rewarded both ways.

I found a lot of these: Craterellus cornucopioides, also known as trumpet of death, black chanterelle, black trumpet, or horn of plenty. In spite of it's name and looks it's not only edible, it's one of the most delicious species' there is in the forests of Scandinavia.

K5, Pentax M 100mm Macro f4.


First one f8 1sec iso200. Small tripod, 2 sec delay MLU

But then it got really fun. Ten years ago I made one of the first confirmed finds in Sweden of the very rare Cantharellus friesii, the orange or velvet chanterelle. This saturday I found it again.


Third one f8 0,3sec iso800

Good to see you around, Kjell.

Love the mushrooms! I rarely see them, being on the edge of a desert (they do show up once in a while), but love photographing them. How in the world did an edible, delicious mushroom get a common name of "trumpet of death"?! It's certainly an interesting looking mushroom though.

I don't think I've ever seen so many mushrooms on the forum. Looks like they are plentiful all over this year.

Nice images. And, I'm curious, too, about how that first one got it's name.
