Mainely Shrooms

These colorful (but deadly) mushrooms were photographed this week at Acadia National Park. This post is especially for Christer at The Cottage by the Crane Lake as we always enjoy his ‘shroom photos. DSCN2996DSCN2912  DSCN2982 DSCN2993

If you know the names of any of these ‘shrooms and want to post a comment, please do so.

Warning – there there are no cukes or zukes left in the F&P garden for prizes. Yes, we know some of you are so disappointed :-)

Beautiful mushrooms :-) The top ones is some kind of toad stool. They look much like ours but I have never seen any yellow over here. They are simply fantastic!

I recognize the reddish ones from here and the pale blueish ones in the photo below too. But I have no idea what they can be called.

Thank You for showing them to us!
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hello you two lovebirds,

I have no clue what the real individual names are, but in Norway, all mushrooms are "sopp."

There is just something unusual about, "Would you like some sopp with that burger?"

;),

Christer, glad you enjoyed seeing these. When I saw them all just knew I had to do a full post to show everyone. I would have tried to ID them, but our reference books are back home. There are so many here in Acadia National Park - everywhere we go. You would find so many to photograph. Great day to you as well!

Hi Lois, thanks for the info on what we should call the shrooms if we ever get to Norway and order and burger with them :-). And we know that you and your "honey" are having a wonderful time together as well.

By the way, yesterday we had heard the Queeen Mary was visiting Bar Harbor and had hoped to get a photo of the ship when we were at Acadia National Park. But, when we got there in late afternoon, the ship was not there :-(
