Lucky day. Another near perfect specimen of - Laetiporus Sulphureus - Chicken of the Woods. It is also known as the Sulphur Shelf for its distinct sulfur yellow color of rim and spores. IT DOES taste like chicken. I confirm. Although, it may also be just a glitch in the Matrix. Choice edible when young. ~

Major find today. 10-20 pounds of Mitake around the base of an Oak tree.

Hen of the Woods mushroom is also known by its Japanese name Maitake (舞茸, “dancing mushroom”) is a prized choice edible with an incredible nutty mushroom flavor. It grows as a parasitic polypore in light symbiosis with Oak trees in North America from later Summer to late Fall. And can grow as large as 100 pounds on record around a single tree - known as a King of Mushrooms in Japan.

An even more rare find for me, the elusive pink bolete - dubbed “Lilac Bolete”. Boletus Separans pops after massive rains in late Summer to Fall, singles or small clusters under oaks. It is a choice edible. The distinct pinkish / lilac color of its pileus is very pronounced when the mushroom is young. ~

I have finally found the famous Appalachian Bolete - Boletus Nobilis OR the Noble Bolete. This is a distinctive, hardwood-associated bolete from the Appalachian Mountains and is a close cousin of the King of all Boletes, Boletus Edulis - Porchini. This is a choice edible.

It is that time of year for the infamous Jack-O-Lantern mushroom - Omphalotus olearius a major cause of poisoning among untrained mushroom enthusiasts. To an untrained eye it appears similar to chanterelles. It will earn you a quick trip to the hospital and liver damage for life. I recommend always going by the rule- “When in doubt, throw it out.” | A peculiar quality of this fungi is bioluminescence. If you catch it at night, you will see dim green glow around its gills. ~

It was a treat photographing this mushroom with an excellent sounding name - Xerula Radicata, formerly known as Oudemansiella Radicata. It sounds like a character straight out of a Sci-Fi opera. Radicata is known as a deep root mushroom - from Radicata - Root in Latin. This is probably the only mushroom that has a long tooth like root resembling a shank, in some cases as long as 8 inches. It grows on decaying woods and is considered to be edible.

My favorite poisonous mushroom. Not for its posion but for its beauty and flying saucer shape. I used a lot of red light in order to signal danger. This Amanita Cokeri named after the famous American mycologist William Coker, is deadly poisonous, defined in 1940s. ~

Hello Color. A perfect specimen of Turkey Tail - Trametes Versicolor. This is another one of my ultimate favorites for several reasons. Versicolor literally means - multiple colors or a multitude of color. Turkey tail specimens range in great varieties of color combinations. I also make tinctures and decoctions out of this fungi for its incredible medicinal immunity boosting properties. The scientific reseach about this mushroom in the recent years supports the folk medicinal claims and has potential for treatment and prevention of many cancers such as Leukemia, Breast and Liver Cancer, as well as supports Liver cleansing potential. ~

One of the Ossetian / Alans tower overlooking the valley of Fiagdon and the Caucasus mountains. Very little information can be found about the Ossetian towers online. But, the Ossetians themselves tell incredible stories about their ancestors building magnificent obelisks and towers both as fortifications and beacons of every Alano-Ossetian clan.
