Earth Star

I found this little fellow when out in the woods recently
A pretty little thing, relatively rare in this part of the world so it's nice to find.
there is debate over whether these are edible or not and there are some varieties that definitely are but I'm not confident enough in mycology to differentiate between them.
There is a legend amongst the Blackfoot tribe, who call them fallen stars, that says these are their ancestors come to earth in a time of need.
This very special little thing reminds me of someone very special!



  1. This is beautiful! Thanks for sharing, bro!

  2. Lovely! I've never seen anything like this. It's so interesting to keep coming across things on the earth that one has never heard of , let alone seen.

  3. thanks for coming along guys!!

  4. No bother;-)... it is always a pleasure, no irony intended.
