There are so many different kinds of mushrooms, it's really interesting to see the pictures of them. I've read that there are over 10,000 mushroom species in North America. It amazes me that there are that many different kinds of mushrooms. Living in North Georgia, we don't have that many different kinds, but the ones that I come across are always interesting to stop and look at and snap a picture, if I have my camera.
I think one of the exciting aspects of mushroom curiosity is that they make wonderful photograph subjects. I love to get a picture of a mushroom to see if I can find out what species it is, it's like being a mushroom detective!
Because of the moisture mushrooms are everywhere around my place. Some of them are growing on dead branches laying on the ground. Some on the bark of trees and some just at the base of tall, living hardwood trees.
