Negutaquet Land Trust
North Berwick, Maine
Today, Buddy and I went to the Negutaquet (your pronunciation is as good as mine) Land Trust close to home for a morning walk and some mushroom hunting. I haven't been able to identify many of these yet. The lens cover on my iPhone is shattered and I just get fuzzy and spotted images with it so the app Seek by iNaturalist doesn't help much. And, it helps less when I leave the phone in the car like I did this morning. So, what I've been doing is putting them in Lightroom, editing as I like and then using Seek to try to identify the mushroom from the picture. As you can see it's worked in a few cases but as I only have a 2-dimensional mushroom to work with I can't circle around it or look under it to help the app ID the fungi. So, I do what I can. If you know the species of any of these or can correct my IDs then please let me know. Seek can usually get to the Family or Genus but I really want to nail the Species.
These fellows are fascinating and it's worth getting muddy and wet to commune with them. I still need to work on tighter focus though. Just not happy with it as it is. Today I was using my Fuji XT-2 with a 16-55mm 2.8 lens on my travel tripod which should be sufficient but there seems to be something I'm missing. Anyway, the journey continues.
Unidentified but I like the skirt Green Russula
