First, just a reminder of the unseen competition. You ever wonder why a mushroom has been chopped over or has large chunks missing. Blames these little guys. I wonder how well morels go with escargot?
This grey is starting to turn white on the edges and might eventually have become a nice large white. I say might because there was no way I was leaving it behind.
This one seems like the one above but has a reddish tinge. Oh did I say that the last three photos are all of the same mushroom just from different sides. Just shows what even a little differences in exposure can do.
Here was the tallest we found. This one was found on Saturday while out hunting with Camoshroomer - a graceful tall, thin yellow just over 4 1/2 inches.
Last, if you see these guys out there growing straight out of a small half-buried log (which is very unusual to see morels growing directly out of wood), please let them be. I hope to come back and see how they have grown in a week or so.
