Fungi Walk

Another day out in the woods. This time the Yellowfoot Chanterelle (Craterellus tubaeformis) was the star of the show. What a pleasure to find these little guys. They are found in quite large numbers making them quite easy to collect and they're always super clean! 

Also abundant on today's walk, Elaphocordyceps capitata. Commonly known as the Truffle Eater, this fungus is only able to fruit after parasitizing a species of deer truffle.
