Very quick evening walk. Was getting dark for photography but managed a few shots. The mushrooms were abundant, you couldn't walk a few feet without finding something. This is going to be a bumper year and I'm hoping for record amounts of Ceps.

I took this picture for effect. I sectioned the cap, leaving the stipe intact to show the amazing contrast of the red stipe against the cornflower blue flesh.
