Northumberland (and other wonderful places)

The Children's Mother was ill today but she managed a short walk with the dogs this morning.
I don't know what this fungi is and the Children's Mother is not certain, so more research required. What ever, I love the subtle colours and tones. Just before I took this shot, one of the terriers set a young deer across our path. It was for too quick for the camera but really nice to see so close. Fortunately, the terrier is much more interested in rabbits!
Further on, we came across these Cep fungi (Boletus edulis). Ugly looking things but I am assured that they are edible, I suppose that is logical as some of the most attractive are really poisonous! These are a little unusual in that they don't have gills but have pores to exude the spores.
