There was a gull corpse near the gas station up the street for the past few weeks, and the ants have been cleaning it up nicely. I walked by it again earlier today, but I couldn’t see what was left through the tall grass. I did, however, spot a huge Shaggy Ink Cap Mushroom. The ones growing in my back yard one year had been the size of my thumb, but this one was probably the size of my foot.
I was in a hurry, so I couldn’t linger to inspect it all, but I’m going back out later to see it. I’m going to take a plastic bag and a little cork vial with me just in case I decide to take something home.
