When we see a fungus above ground, we are actually only seeing about 10% of the whole organism called the "fruiting body" as 90% of it is underground as the "roots" or the mycelium. Depending on their food-source, fungi is either a Sapotroph or Parasite. Some have restricted distributions while others have broad ranges. The best time to search for fungal fruiting bodies is during the cooler, wet months. That's the time to go for walks with your camera and to capture these intriguing organisms at their best.
