The Fungus Among Us

We've had a lot of rain lately and strange fungi have been appearing all over our lawn and woods. Here are six of the many, many species we've seen and just in time for our unit on sporing! Does our interest in fungus necessarily make us geeks? I'm OK with that. I mean, look at these things--some are red, some are curly, some are slimy and others look like soft leather. Some are little more than a button, others are massive, and many have more interesting undersides than topsides. If fungus isn't cool, it should be!
