Photo Of the Month

We know many of you are out in the field, camera in hand, taking beautiful, interesting, awe-inspiring or just plain quirky images. They may be coffee-table-book-beautiful, show a field guide level of detail, or convey the sheer joy of mushrooming. Let’s share them! Enter your choice pics in the Fungus Federation’s Photo of the Month contest. Winning images (editor’s choice) will be posted on the FFSC website and may be used in a FFSC publication...
