Nature and Fungi – A Walk Around Oppegårdstjernet

In the recent spring, we took a walk around Oppegårdstjernet, a lake on the outskirts of the little coastal town of Drøbak. I was surprised to see a variety of fungi – mostly because I feel like I have typically come upon mushrooms and other fungal varieties in fall rather than spring – but that is up for debate. In any case, here are some interesting and colorful specimens from our walk.

While not as brilliant, I liked the muted colors of this specimen.

    1. I really do not know much about mushroom or multicellular fungi. But most of these type I have noticed seem to be on living trees (and have no clue whether they are detrimental or not).
