A royal surprise

It's been hot and dry here so mushrooms were the last thing I expected to find in the woods at Howarth Park! Agaricus augustus is also known as The Prince. They are considered to be quite tasty but a seething mass of larvae got there first.

  1. Wonderful drawings, Debbie. Too bad about the larva -- they do add protein you know. lol

  2. These are fabulous, Debbie! Such great detail.
