Foraging, Photography and Trash

Earlier today my Mother and I went out for an early morning mushroom forage and photography session at one of my favourite places in Harrietville, Tronoh Dredge.

The beauty of the morning was juxtaposed by the amount of litter we found scattered around the bush.

It is a shame that some people do not have the moral sense to clean up after themselves and respect the common resources that are shared by us all (other species included).

 

Edible Saffron Milk Caps (Lactarius deliciosus).

*Remember to only eat mushrooms that you can correctly identify

Despite being unsightly, rubbish also poses a threat to native wildlife and can take centuries to decompose.  Here are some photos I took this morning of what we picked up within a 200m radius.
