Woods and Fungi

I started photographing fungi in late-2017, and have visited several sites in and around Edinburgh.  Here are some of the photos that I've taken on my visits. 

 I'm slowly learning how to identify the fungi, so I hope to be able to add the the species names for some of the photos soon.
