Heavy fall rains. This creates the unique combination that spawns the growth of incredible mushrooms. I decided to take a little walk with my puppy and daughter and was amazed with the variety and the size of these!
Not the greatest photo you'll see - I had to maneuver and shoot through the bush to get this, but luckily I was able to use it to blend out the background a little more, otherwise it'd be a little too busy. Still, I rarely, in fact never get this close.
