Fantastic fungi on autumn walks.

SUMMER'S definitely had its last hurrah and autumn is finally with us.

Misty mornings; red, gold and yellow leaves falling from branches; woodsmoke curling from chimneys. Even if the days are getting shorter they are definitely getting prettier.

With autumn comes lovely woodland walks where you can spot all sorts of lovely things growing - including some very colourful mushrooms.

Frances Stoner shared these pictures on Facebook of some fantastic fungi she snapped in Caulms Wood in Dewsbury. She said: "The purple ones (left) are Amethyst deceiver; the white ones are puffballs and the red spotted one is a fly agaric.

"But I'm not sure what the orange one is.

"I run Dewsbury brewing and foraging group - we've been a bit inactive lately but we try and figure out what's what.

"The puffball and amethyst deceiver are both edible. I'm not sure of orange - perhaps your readers could help?" | Share your autumnal pictures with us twitter @examiner, on our Facebook page or by emailing
