Things in the forest

It’s so typical, the weekend when I would be free to go anywhere without worrying about work calling, I don’t have anywhere to go. I was hoping for some sunshine last evening but it never happened, so the day pretty much wasted away. It was an equally dull today, except for a little bit of sunshine which I actually didn’t need at all because I was out hunting mushrooms. It has rained a bit this week, so the mushrooms are popping up everywhere. The only problem was finding some photogenic individuals because nobody likes to look at rotten and maggot eaten ’shrooms.

I haven’t done any mushroom shooting in recent years, not sure why. Perhaps for the same reason that I never pick mushrooms – I just can’t identify them. If I ate anything I’d pick, I’d probably kill myself or at least knock out some internal organs. Anyway, I hate having unidentified things in my catalogue. I want to know every flower I shoot, every mountain, every lake, everything. I guess I’m a bit obsessive about names… so I’m very curious right now about two orchids I found in the forest. I know they’re orchids for sure, even when they withered. I just don’t know which ones when I can’t see the blooms. The first one had leaves like a common spotted orchid (it’s very rare around here, instead we have plenty of their close relative heath spotted orchid) and the second one could be a frog orchid (also very rare here), but I’m just not sure. And now I have to wait in suspense until next summer to find out!
