OCT 4th: Fungi are every bit as diverse and fascinating as moths so I'd thoroughly recommend anyone with an interest in Lepidoptera to give these more than just a casual glance this autumn.

This one's a Field Bird's Nest fungi, one of around a dozen specimens present on my local allotment at the moment.
