This evening, I am focusing on Fungi. Our mild, wet autumns are conducive to growth of these Eukaryotic organisms which are related to mushrooms, but not plants.

Children’s author, Beatrix Potter undertook extensive research on Fungi during her forays into Perthshire, Scotland and produced some acclaimed research which proved that Fungi are distinct from plants. This work was produced during the 19th century.

I think Fungi are too often overlooked, but I find the species absolutely fascinating, especially the wide array of shapes, colours and sizes which emerge during our autumns.

The portfolio of images shown here were obtained south of Glasgow, Scotland. I look forward to enlarging my image library on the subject later in the year.
