slapped on some mosquito dope and headed down some nearby nature trails...hot and humid in the woods this afternoon but I managed a few images while slappin the pajesus out of the skeeters!...amazing how they find a spot where you didn't put on the repellent...blood thirsty little demons for sure! cry

Not sure what species these mushrooms are but they sure were enormous!...some were close to 11"-12" across...

Great stuff, Jonny. I think you've got some amanita family shrooms here. That second shot in particular is way cool! gringrin

Sure did Hemi...been doing that to a percentage of my images for years...Guess I like it grin...guess we gravitate to a style of photography that pleases us on an individual basis...no doubt there's some that may find that particular style somewhat questionable.... grin

Neat shots. Did you place the leaf on the mushroom to give some perspective as to the size of it?

Thanks All!...no I didn't Cicada..those leaves were all fallen of their own accord...these photos show only a few of these "monster" amanitas...and I bet I came across probably 100 or so in the area yesterday...really quite amazing!...many other unknown species also.yellows, pinks, whites....not sure if they are edible though(amanitas aren't for sure)...here's another with more oak leaves that have taken their last ride from the tree tops

the "moosehorn" mushroom grin...pretty good size to this mushroom(amanita) as one can see by the size of the oak leaves....too bad one couldn't eat em...make a nice meal grin

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.
