The color palette of mushrooms is as diverse as the number of species – ranging from extremely colorful, saturated and conspicuous to almost camouflage and barely visible.

Here is an example of the bland kind.

This was the only specimen of the species I encountered during my fungi-walk this day, but what an amazing specimen – just at its prime!

I found it in a very small area of forest with mostly spruce, but with aspen and birch mixed in, and this mix definitely shows in the number of fungi species popping up here this autumn.
