Walking in the Woods: fungi

Here are a few photos I snapped in the Pennsylvania woods. It rained heavily both Sunday and the following Friday, so everything was moist and mushrooms were springing up everywhere: among the leaves, between rocks, amid the mosses. This first one is my favorite - the Indian Pipes. I love their unusual shape and ghostly white, almost-translucent color.
Here are a few others:

Of course, the main reason I was out in the woods was to walk Cassie. I think she liked all the different and new smells out in the wilderness. She even scouted out a deer skull and a few other bones. But she was very happy to get home to her "invisible fence" so she could run around without her leash!
