Troops (of mushrooms) at the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve

One early morn' this week at the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve, snow on the ground? Not quite; it was mushrooms, lots of them (Marasmiellus albuscorticis perhaps?). Whatever their name, they love to grow on twigs and are delicate and orderly, often appearing in rows.

Tee hee hee, we climbed on a twig!

Nom nom, these tasted good to some little critter.
Some looked like perfect parasols. One half-expects to find a tiny winged fairy napping underneath...
