I can't bear that miserable bloody Edvard Munch picture for another moment. Not one. So I'm joining the Querencia club — that select club of bloggers pictured crouching next to edible fungi.
Yes, I've been out fungus hunting with Professor X. Which means: term is coming; autumn is near! Our haul included edible lactarius, pine ceps, chanterelles, wood mushrooms and a vast number of other spp. whose scientific names faded disgracefully upon hearing.
More pictures on flickr. Alas, none show the hundreds upon hundreds of hawker dragonflies; nor do they supply the peculiar aural background of heat-crackling pinecones and F-15 engines.
Mind you, no ticks in the pictures either. I escaped this time. I hate ticks.
