Irises Near My House

Check out these amazing Iris flowers near my house here in Tiraspol.  Pretty amazing.  All sorts of different colors and shapes.  I have never realized that they come in such varieties. I have always thought that they are only blue in color))).

Weird Mushrooms (Auricularia auricula-judae) -Wood Ear

Finally got around to posting these photos. These are some interesting mushrooms Auricularia auricula-judae or Judas Ear (Wood Ear). These mushrooms do look like human ears. We found a bunch of them near Tiraspol (Transnistria). They are edible and my friend took all of them home to cook. It's kind of strange seeing them at first. And they feel leathery)))

Here are some more of them.  

This one is a little larger Auricularia auricula-judae and doesn't really look like an ear

My Encounter with Burgundy Snail or Helix pomatia

Check out these cool land snails I photographed in the forest. Yes, a real forest))) We went mushroom hunting just outside of Tiraspol and I there was a bunch of these guys everywhere.  They are huge)) The common names for them are  Burgundy snail and Roman snail.  The real Latin name is Helix pomatia.   Apparently, Fresh people eat them (what a bunch of weirdos).  They also eat frogs, so it's not surprising))).
