Another week has gone by and the contributions to #FungusFriday keep getting better!

Rather than post links to all the cool contributions this week, I thought I'd make a suggestion instead!

If you like mushrooms and other cool fungi, do yourself a favour and type fungusfriday into your search bar!  I swear you won't be disappointed with all the cool shots you'll find there!

And be sure to checkout +Shawn McClure's fantastic tooth fungus shot ( and +Eugene Madatov's cool infrared shot of toadstools (!

Thank you again to everyone who shared a photo this week!  Without you #FungusFriday wouldn't be where it is today! 

See you all this coming Friday!  :)

It's great to see that there's still lots of fungi out there for everyone to shoot!  I've been going through fungi withdrawal for a while now, but hope to get away for a few days next month to visit the coast!  So hopefully I'll be able to get some cool shots (fingers crossed/knock on wood) for #FungusFriday !

This week I was was really impressed with the following three photos!

+Shelly Wason contributed this amazing group shot of  five tiny mushrooms growing on beautiful moss:

This eye catching silhouette of a mushroom and grass set against a beautifully coloured backdrop by +Tomas Antmark-Dagobert

 and this cool shot of Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus) growing from a tree in the Pacific Northwest shot by +Mike Culver

Thanks to everyone who contributed a photo this week for #FungusFriday !

Happy fungus hunting!  :D

I missed my weekly post of favourite fungus photos from #FungusFriday last week, so here they are now!  Sorry for being late, but I've been really busy and a bit remiss on my curatorial duties!  :(

This week I've chosen four very cool fungi photos that really left an impression with me!

I hope you enjoy them!

Check out this incredible photo by +Mike Culver of tiny golden mushrooms:

And I'd like to thank everyone who submitted a photo to #FungusFriday !  I'm stiil finding contributions that I missed on Friday so bear with me!  I will try to +1 every contribution once I track all the contributions down!

P.S.  This would be a whole lot easier if contributions were tagged with +Dan Bowden and +Fungus Friday!

See you all this Friday!  :D

Check out +Rinus Bakker's stunning fungi photography!

We should all thank that lady for showing Rinus these beautiful creations of nature!  :D
While crossing the woods I met a lady who offered me to show where to find the funghi and she showed me things I didn't know it exists. I do not know your name but again lady I say Thank YOU!

This shot by +James Tiffany

This monochrome shot by +Mike Culver
