Mushroom Madness

I just had to share this …such fascinating shapes and colours in the fungi!

The first time I have found an Earthstar! It was on the Bingie Dreaming Track, near Grey Rocks. This bright yellow coral fungus below is growing near remnant forest in Bingie, under a conservation order to protect it and all its diversity.
