The largest cap is about 10cm in diameter. Found by lake Rotokawau near Rotorua in native scrubby bush. Fruited late March 2019 after very little rain following a fairly long 2-month absence of all rain.

Just some random photos taken lately
The Rotorua Museum, currently closed for earthquake repairs, has some excessive embellishments on the roof. It’s amazing someone drew it, but not as amazing as someone then building it!

I have no idea what’s inside. We moved here after the damage occurred.
I love this photo. I can’t credit it as it has been entered into a competition and the voting is blind.
I take a lot of photos. Few make it to the blog. It appears that I enjoy the process of capturing more than the joy to be had from sharing it. But as I was showing a few to someone just now, I thought I’d pop them up here as well.
Washed up on the shore. Probably a meal for the grey heron that regularly patrols that stretch of the lake. Bits missing, but still nice and colourful. (And smelly!)
Just a test post to see if social media linking is working
