L: Phoneography: A Mushroom Cap Labyrinth

I first discovered the mushroom in our backyard a month ago and as it’s grown the pattern on the mushroom cap has become a labyrinth.

One day in March I discovered these little fellows, about the size of large button mushrooms.


Taken with an iPhone 4 on 3.19.14

I started looking around and there were four ‘stands’ of mushrooms within a six-foot radius. I took shots of them with my iPhone as they grew. As the skin stretched cracks began to appear and the patterns on the caps became labyrinthine.

A week ago I could see they were drying out, which I would guess for a mushroom means they were dying.


Today I went out and took a photo of a very hard and dry ‘shroom.

Not much of a labyrinth left! As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. I’m joining Lens and Pens by Sally’s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Macro.

    Thank you Felicia! You are always so generous with your compliments. Go for it! You never know what might be out there waiting to be photographed. 😉

    Those shots are amazing! I suddenly have the urge to go outside and see if we have any mushrooms cropping up so I can take some photos of them. These are really cool pictures, I can’t get over it!

    No I don’t! I would think it should. But I stumble about so much with all this technology. I’ll investigate tomorrow and see if I can find a reason.
