Wildlife through a microscope. starting with fungi on my trip to Hucclecote 19th November

Dad was uprooting fungi in the lawn. heres the specimen. 

the top of a mushroom is called a cap. 

some fungi have gills. gills sometimes have spores on them. spores  like gills can also help with ifentification. depending on the species the color of the spores may not necacerily be orange but a different color. they help fungi reproduce.  like when seeds spread spores get taken and land so that it can miake mire of each other 

not all fungi have this but Parosols commonly have whats called a fairy ring 

now iv gone through different parts of the fungi here they are through a microscope 

gills 

orangy spore like part on the gills

if itake anymore photos of Wildlife through a microscope weather its imsects or beetles or fungi etc il semd them here

     what sort of things did you look at through the microscope? was it a variety of things or was it mainly  things on leafs or things you found out and about or was it mainly much more microscopic like things that you cant see at all without a microscope?

    Things that were mostly not apparent to the naked eye. If I remember correctly the magnifications on that microscope were 25x, 50x and 100x. I used to pick things up and try to find out what may be found on them.
