Oyster Mushrooms

I’ve read that you can find oyster mushrooms just about any month of the year in the South.  I’ve now found them on the same dead tree in my yard in November, July, September, and May.  I even found some in early April in another location. So when can you find oyster mushrooms in Virginia?  Any time except the dead of winter I guess!

See the photo gallery below for the most recent finds. These photos show a nice variety of sizes, all harvested at different times of the year.

    I just moved to Blacksburg and this is so nice! I love this website and the detail here; I’m slowly learning about the native plants. I lived in Florida my whole life. Your photos are so pretty and crisp!! Do you have any tips for nature photography?

      Thanks for your kind words, Megan! I’m glad the website is useful for you. I’m not sure what to say about “tips” for photography. My work is always in progress and I learn from taking LOTS of photos and then studying the results via the editing process. I use a Canon 80D now, and often employ a macro lens, but I first started out with a Canon T2i and a kit lens.
