There's Fungus Among Us!

Autumn is the time of year that mushrooms and toad-stools are most common in the countryside, and if you know what you are doing, you can find a rich variety of delicious edible fungi. Unfortunately if, like me, you have no knowledge of mycology, then the though of eating some potentially lethal toadstool is really quite scary. During a walk on the Mynydd Mawr headland this morning we came across these intriguing specimens. Any ideas on what they are, or whether they are edible? If you do know, please let us know in the comments below.

A bright red growth with a waxy appearance.

Some rather cute little buttons.

A jelly-like fungus with a vivid orange colour

A puff ball perhaps?
