May mayhem

this is a last minute dash to post before June is upon us.It's an assortment of flora and fauna from the past few days so forgive the randomness of the images..

Foxgloves tower everywhere,replacing the bluebells

 I didn't care that the slugs had got to this fungi well before I did-I was too excited to actually find some at long last.On looking further up the tree I could see some untouched specimens and decided a climb was in order..let it not be said that there is not much I wouldn't do to get a closer look

 Pleurotus (Oyster)-probably Pleurotus cornucopiae Branching oyster, purely because of the time of year

she was beautiful and very curious-nearly had my camera in her attempt to reach the leaves

farly certain this is a type of Melanoleuca or Cavalier,purely because of the longitudinal striations on the stem and the fact that some fruit very early in the season

Cavalier again

aha - the as yet elusive Guinea fowl.We have seen them on many occasions and followed their footprints in the snow but these birds run like the wind and are definitely camera shy

these tiny seed heads springing up from the moss were so vibrant in colour that I did take a good few shots but will not bore you with more than a couple

the next three images are all slime moulds-I did look the names up but have mislaid the piece of paper just for a change-will be back

I do recall this was called Wolf's milk though

Trifolium pratense Red clover
