Because I’m likely to be found outdoors on most Sundays, I thought I’d share some of the photography that so often results from my walks in and around Montagnola and other places in Ticino and northern Italy.
Yesterday, Mrs. M and I found ourselves hiking up in the forest near Agra. After almost ten days straight of overcast skies, rain clouds, and temperate weather in Lugano, I expected we’d see some woodland mushrooms but I never expected we’d see so many! The forest was full of fungi yesterday and I couldn’t help but try and document some of the varieties we saw with the camera on my iPhone. The gallery below gives you a look at some of the scenes we witnessed.
Have you seen fungi in the woods near your home lately? If so, consider taking some photos and sending them to SCIENCEsEDiment.
