British Fungi


Autumn brings a wealth of fascinating changes as the days ease towards Winter. Frequent damp days and rainfall cause fungi to appear overnight, some microscopic and easily overlooked, others large and unmissable.

How can one fail to be intrigued by names such as Amethyst Deceiver, Golden Spindles and Verdigris Agaric?

Some of the following images are from a few years ago whilst others are recent. There's always something fresh to discover and each new day can bring another fungus to identify and try to capture with my camera.
