photographing and learning about wildlife
firm, fleshy mushrooms with tiny white teeth and a buff to light-brown cap; sweet tasting. The teeth are white in the younger specimens and turn browner as they age (the 4th photo, which most resembles hedgehog bristles).
Douglas fir, Sitka spruce and hemlock forest
This is one of the tasty treats of our forest. These particular ones were growing quite late in the season and were some of the biggest we've ever seen--the big cap was 6" across! Made an excellent cream sauce, pizza topping and in lasagna.
