Jack O’Lanterns on a Stump

I found a surprise while hiking in the mountains last week.

How lucky to find a lovely grouping of Jack O’Lantern mushrooms on a fall afternoon.

These orange Omphalotus olearius may look yummy, but they are poisonous.

These were perfectly positioned right beside the trail.

I have heard that the gills glow green in the dark, but I have never seen this.

The leaves had not transformed to their lovely fall colors yet here in North Carolina.

I am glad the Jack O’Lanterns stepped in to add color.
