About ten days ago I noticed dried mushrooms on my deck. Then one morning, I stepped out front and on my porch were these mushrooms pictured below.
It's been a dry summer and no mushrooms are out yet. These are probably from the local rat who was stashing them from the bountiful harvest of mushrooms last summer.
Here he is just leaving my cabin where he ran right past me with his treaure.
the nearest trees to my deck and began to enjoy a snack.
to another limb to find a newly stashed one to try.
The squirrel ends up dropping them on his way to find new hiding places.
