Fungus, fly. Fly, fungus. Not like that, like that.

Sorry about the repetitive theme but this is what we're working with now! Maybe another bird will show up at lunchtime today. Why not?

Having found myself briefly locked out as I waited for the missus yesterday night I stumbled into this lovely Lactarius deterrimus on the edge of a garden. It has orange milk, which narrows it down very swiftly!

The fly, Suillia pallida, was only finally sorted out this morning though I had keyed the family and guessed the genus yesterday.
