This Evening's Walk

Recommended Posts

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

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
