In my experience, March is usually the best time of the year for Shroomin, but with the decrease in regular rain this month and with some hot weeks, it hasn’t been the best few weeks for a variety of mushrooms. Luckily this last week has delivered some much-needed rains and some cooler temperatures, so the next few weeks are looking promising for a Cairns Mushroom Tour.
Luckily there has been enough to see to make the Let’s Go Shroomin Tours worthwhile and it’s been fantastic to share my love of mushrooms and photography with some like-minded people. The next few weeks will likely see the end of the tours until the rains kick in again in December.
I have however been taking a few little excursions to a few different places to see if I could potentially run some special Shroomin Tours during next season. I’ve been able to see a few unusual species on these excursions. Including this gorgeous scene on a private Kuranda property. In the family of slime moulds called Tubifera, but the exact species is unknown. They remind me of some African Trees I’ve seen in some documentaries. Each clump is only about 4mm tall.
