http://everyday-adventurer.blogspot.com/ on the mushrooms he found and I remembered that I had photographed mushrooms the last trip I took into the forest too. They weren't glowing like his but very large. I wish I had put something beside to compare, as this one was larger than my whole hand.
Then of course remembering that I was in BC where they grow something called Magic Mushrooms I had to take a look on Google to see what they looked like.
Apparently magic mushrooms look quite different. I wonder what brave soul tried one to find out they were hallucinogenic.
I took a small twig and tried knocking at his door very gently as if a bug was caught in his web. It took about 10 minutes of trying different tactics to get it to poke it's head out. I wanted to see what kind it was, as we have the dangerous Hobo spider http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hobo_spider here and having seen them before would have been able to recognize it.
It was early in the morning and before I changed position, I was casting a shadow on the web which probably convinced it, I was more predator then prey.
I could see it moving about inside it's little living area but it would only look out the door never fully appearing.
The mosquitoes that annoyed me all night long must have known my intentions because if I could have slapped one of them, I probably would have put it in the nest, although on second thought it did seem cruel so I finally gave up.
These were the final interesting photos from that trip and thanks to Ratty's post on mushrooms, I remembered them.
