Al Funghi

By gregl
I found myself interested in some mushroom shots and was a bit frustrated not being able to arrange to tramp through the woods in search of suitable subjects.
On my way across the road to buy the Sunday paper I found these growing in a tree planter and couldn’t resist. Saved me lots of time in the woods!!
I have no idea what variety they are, but looking at the image the pattern and details remind me of a moth’s wings.

Thanks for stopping to take a look.

I agree, they certainly do look like moths! Well spotted and captured, Greg. Carol

Nice use of the dof Greg, certainly have po's on your doorstep, prefer the tramp through the woods myself, even if I come back with an empty memory card particularly now with that smell of autumn in the air..(silly old romantic!)
