    Boys have started spotting them to put on this thread so we have twice as many eyes which probably helps

    On the way home from our weekend away yesterday we stopped at a bushland reserve for lunch. I pottered about looking for fungi when I came across these Truffles. I was rapt as they are rare and I had never photographed them before.

    After a bit more searching I came across these.

    And this far larger luminescent variety.

    As Jen called out that lunch was ready I had another close look at the Truffles, so glad to see them, then as I touched them to see how soft they were I realised that they were kangaroo poo with a bit of mould on them Ha! oh well they were still good to see!!!!!! When I told Jen she just gave me that look that us guy's get every now and then. You'd reckon by now she would know I was a bit wacko Ha ha!!

    They certainly are nice looking things when you take the time to look at them like these photos
