The essence of autumn.

Even though most people associate autum with falling leaves and foliage, as soon as mushrooms start to appear, I feel that autumn is here. While the temperatures are still rather high (15-20°C!), the leaves have just begun to slowly change colour and mushrooms are popping up everywhere. Being neither animals nor plants, they are rather fascinating. Their texture is really interesting and they make great subjects!

I don’t really know the different kinds, though, I can recognize a few but would not pick them as food. Better leave them there (for the next photographer who will happen to walk past!).
