One of our most challenging tasks in the field is the identification of fungi.  The fungal kingdom is enormous (1.5 million species).  They range in size from microscopic yeasts to large fleshy mushrooms.  Our study of fungi (mycology) will be limited to the larger 'macro-fungi' which include mushrooms and brackets.   Our challenge is to locate, photograph and identify various interesting local species.

Note:  A group of mushrooms is called a Troop, and the spore producing portion of a mushroom is called a Fruit-body.  Our photos are mainly of the fruit-bodies of mushrooms.
