Photo Share: On a Morel hunt

Buddy (dog) is on his way to hunt morels in the woods. This wet, not too warm spring is perfect for their growth.

Morchella esculenta, (commonly known as  Honeycomb Morel, Yellow Morel, Morel Mushroom, and Sponge Morel) is one of the most recognized and sought after edible fungi.

May is Morel Month in Michigan by Heather Hallen, Tom Volk, and Gerard Adams is a Michigan State Extension Publication that explains many fascinating facts about Morels.

Thank you for sharing your photos! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com and I'll put it on the Friday Photo posts.
