Earth Stars and Yew Trees

There seem to be lots of earth star fungi around at the moment! Here are just a few of those I saw at lunchtime around Corstorphine Hill



The yew trees are looking at their best at the moment too

Are those first photos some type of fungus in the woods? They resemble something here known as Artillery Fungus....:)jp
