Q: Why am I not given the option to nominate a person for member of the week?

A: Do you know?

I captured this huge mushroom in my front yard yesterday and thought it amusing how big of a bite had been taken out of it by a critter (prob. a squirrel or rabbit...they are so numerous around here). I was also feeling pretty good that this was my very first RAW image! :-)

    Excellent closeup, Don! It looks as if Alice in Wonderland, in her "large" condition, took a bite.

    It is fantastic Donald. It may be those hippies in Tennesse eating them. They get my mushrooms all the time. LOL. Great RAW shot!!

    This is very pretty...Is this mushroom edible for humans to eat?...If you don't see the animal that took a bite of it pushing up daisies with all four feet up in the air then maybe it is safe:)
