What on earth do I disappear into the woods for weeks on end to hunt?
The deliciously difficult to find (but easy to enjoy) morel mushroom, that's what.
There's a trick to pattern recognition, especially when they're hidden in thatched grasses that are virtually the same color as the mushrooms.
They can be hard to see, even when you know they are there and I have gotten down among them with the camera, right?
As we frequently quip, "They can hide, but they cannot run." - and they do it so very well!
So, now you know at least a big chunk of what my family and I are up to during the merry month of May.
Of course, the eating comes after the finding...
