Now THAT's a Mushroom!

I very nearly stepped on it - with it's covering of fir needles and such. It was on a faint path going into the woods from the road. I didn't see it at first. When I did, I couldn't believe my eyes, so I cleaned off the forest debris and took some pictures.

I put my hand next to it to give an idea of how huge this beautiful fungus really is.

To see Nature from all around, please visit Gemma at Greyscale Territory, and join us for Weekend Nature.


  1. Wow that is huge! And love the way one side has a very definite curl!

    A fantastic contribution for my Weekend Nature meme!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Wow! If it were edible, it would be "entree" size!

  3. Sissy! That thing is HUGE! Good lands--you could use it for a dinner plate!!!
