mushrooms

After almost no rain for weeks and weeks, we've finally been getting plenty of rain. It's rained just about every day for the past week. This means we've had lots of mushrooms pop up in the yard. So I decided to get down real low and close to capture a few pics.

The rain also means we've had fire ant nests pop up in the yard a lot. This is a bummer because they bit me a couple of times while I was trying to get the mushroom shots. But at least I found something new to photograph...
