We have had a lot of rain the past few weeks-it is a welcome change from drought conditions. Clearly though, the weather seems to go to extremes these days. Things are downright soggy here.

In any case, mushrooms are abundant in the woods behind out house. I was amuse by the little Indian Pipe (which is actually a flower, related to blueberries!). It is seemingly sheltering under a big mushroom. I don't know what kind of mushroom the "umbrella" is....I'd like to learn to do image stacking for more clarity...but this was just a spontaneous hand-held event, teetering on my creaky knee. :)

Love the combination of pipe and fungus, it's wonderful. I think the mushroom is in genus Suillus, maybe Suillus spraguei.

post your picture to iNaturalist and you can get the mushroom identified.  iNaturalist is a collaboration between the California Academy of Sciences and National Geographic.  It is free and very useful.

Intriguing combination Cindy. Excellent sighting and opportunity taken despite the changeable weather. (PS, totally get the knee...comes to us all at some point)...
Make your life spectacular!

Thanks Tom. iNaturalist suggests "Painted Suillus"  . Has not been verified .

It really does look like it is taking shelter, snuggled up against it.

What you are producing from the walks in your woods are brilliant!  I loved your Mushketeers and I love this one, Cindy.  Both First Class, beautifully composed and expertly taken.  This lovely little 'pipe' sheltering under the protective presence of the spreading mushroom is an absolute delight!  :)

I think the Indian Pipe feels very safe under the umbrella. Well spotted and captured.
