Taken deep in the swamp, this looks like a flower mushroom.

I’ve never seen this before. Some type of orange mushroom?

Looks like an umbrella mushroom.

The recent rains have flooded everything. Chesnut Park was flooded in mid-September when I stopped there after 2 solid days of rain. Fungus things were popping up everywhere. Some were pretty, some looked creepy. I wonder if the birds or squirrels eat mushrooms. I didn’t see any while I was there. The nice thing was the boardwalks were really slimy and slippery so it kept the joggers and dog walkers off of them. The bad thing was there wasn’t a lot of birds around even without people running by.
