Part journal, part ID guide, and part sketchbook.
Mostly mushrooms, some birds, a few moths, and plenty of other natural history topics.

Mushroom Log - Mid August 2017
A wood growing LBM with a granular sort of texture to give it some distinction.
It features a slimy cap.
The mushrooms in these photos inhabit a well-rotted stump. I think I first noticed these mushrooms about fifteen years ago, when instead of a stump, they inhabited a rotten spot at the base of a basswood (if memory serves me correct). We're sort of friends at this point. Mycena haematopus
Light brown spore print, growing in loose cluster along the edge of a trail that followed the edge of a deciduous woods. Tough, especially the stem. The stem also showed some slight granular texture. Maybe Pholiota terrestrias, but most sources describe that species as more scaly.
