Western Australian fungi

It might be cold and occasionally wet, but July is the key month for fungi and I've been a keen amateur (Very !!) fungatologist for several years now.
Trying to ID and recognise fungi is no easy task, but at least I'm managing to put a fair amount of variety in front of the trusty 5D and Tamron 90mm macro this year.

Friends of Warwick Bush aside, I've been out in Craigie Bush Reserve as usual and spent today in Walyunga National park too, collecting more images.
