  1. Yay! Glad you’re OK Tom. You know, we bloggers get a little hinky when one of us slips under the radar for a while.
    Cool shrooms. The third picture reminds me of Fuzzy Wuzzy Bath Soap from when I was a kid.
    The last picture looks like (sorry) dog poo.

  2. Yeah, Tom’s back! I took some pictures today at Rimrock of a mushroom that must be the same species… I’ll post later.

  3. Welcome back! Cool mushroom pictures. I feel like the last one, ha.

  4. I will call off the search party – welcome back! Loved today’s photos – for some reason the 1st mushroom photo reminds me of a birdbath.

    Next time you go off for a while, could you let your readers know, so they don’t worry. Great photos.

  6. The last few pics sure let you know a shroom is a fungus! ick 🙂

    You know, there’s a great remedy for missing your blog friends… need I mention it?

  7. We missed you!

    Hi Tom. I was just writing about some fungus in our garden too. Glad to hear you are ok. Summer does eat up our time with the many things we get to do. Hope you are enjoying the long hours of daylight.

  9. Glad to hear from you, Tom. And, uh, wow — that is a disturbing series of pictures. Freaky!

    23 July 2008 at 8:27 pm

  10. Wow, what cool pictures. With all the rain and hot days we’ve had there are mushrooms popping up all over.

    23 July 2008 at 10:05 pm

  11. Wow, excellent slice of (mushroom) life. That third shot really is remarkable.

    Nice to see you Tom-love the hairy shroom!

    Hey, the fungus got a fungus. Odd series of pix.

    23 July 2008 at 11:01 pm

  14. Well, we’re glad you “came up for some air” and posted. We’re glad to know everything is fine. And it’s obvious how much you’ve been missed. Very interesting photos.

  15. Hey, Tom! I was going to use the “your fungus has a fungus” line, but Grace beat me to it. I’ll just say, “Great photos,” instead.

  16. Glad to see you are back from vacation — we all need one once in a while.

    With all of the rain in the East,it looks to be a good mushroom year — especially for what looks to be your Fly Amanita — a cool poisonous customer.

    24 July 2008 at 6:21 am

  17. We all need breaks and sometimes life gets busy.
    Ya gotta know we all luv you and care.
    Looking forward to some more photos when you have time.

    24 July 2008 at 7:37 am

  18. Welcome back Tom… Need. Bird. Pictures. Pretty. Bird. Pictures.

    Yea! Tom is back. :c)

    24 July 2008 at 7:41 am

  19. Dear god! Look at this outpouring of support. Haha. Mr. Tom was lost, but now is found.

    The shrooms are great. Nice shots of turningpoints in their life.

  20. Very interesting ‘hairy’ shroom. Was that another fungus attacking it?

    24 July 2008 at 9:25 am

  21. I have been out of the picture as well–can’t quite get back to posting on my blog–after vacation.

    Those mushrooms shots are great.

    24 July 2008 at 9:26 am

  22. Nice return with mushrooms. Glad all is well there.

    24 July 2008 at 10:26 am

  23. So I won’t be the first to say–hurray, glad you’r back. Nor the first to say–we missed you.
    Nor the first to say–that’s one big hairy mushroom.
    Tee hee.

    24 July 2008 at 3:40 pm

  24. I hope you are having a great summer

    24 July 2008 at 5:18 pm

  25. Wow…how interesting! Thanks for sharing these photos of the process of life & death in the fungi world.

    24 July 2008 at 6:46 pm

  26. Tom, I’ve been thinking about you! I know what summer does to our souls… Busy, busy, not enough hours in the day. Glad you are having fun :o)

    If mushrooms and fungus can be called beautiful, you prove it!

    It’s funny, I stumbled across this blog on google looking up some frog information. (I’m sort of a nature fanatic myself) I’ve never left a comment but I come look and read every single day and when you hadn’t been posting I was worried!

    Glad to hear you’re well and just busy. Summer does that to us all 🙂

    p.s. the mushrooms are beautiful. I love them!!

    24 July 2008 at 9:39 pm

  28. VERY cool shots. I am so into capturing the real, and you’ve done it here. Anyone can take a regular old mushroom picture; it takes a special eye to capture a series like this. And yep, I am unapologetic when I say I missed your blog! 😉

    Good to hear you are ok, it’s been a while also for me.
    Take care (and keep teaching us about mother nature!)

    Eww! That’s one of the yuckiest things I’ve ever seen. Great photos.

    Fellow nature lover and WoW addict.

  31. Love the photos. Hard to pick, but the first one is awesome.

    30 July 2008 at 4:44 pm

  32. There’s lots of cool fungus amongus.
    Define “other computer things”.
