Such an unbelievable huge variety, so many different colors and shapes and some of them so beautiful.
You could just drop by the nearest forest and literally bump into them. All you have to do is pick them up! Well, it isn't quite so!
As it usually happens with people, we easily judge by the looks, but it's never wise to do so. And this is exactly the aspect that has always made mushrooms not only fascinating for me, but also something that fills me with awe...
An old greek saying warns: "All kinds of mushrooms can be consumed. Some of them only once, though". Exactly! The most beautiful ones are usually the most dangerous...
You can't just rely on your eyes or instict or luck. You have to study them, learn how to observe them, know them and tell them apart. Of course, there's always the safe choice called "super market", but frankly nothing compares to the taste of wild mushrooms.
I have to admit after all, that I love them for not being that easy!
And for being one of the most educative surprises of nature, teaching us that regardless of being born a fungus, a parasite, you could always turn out to be a treasure...
