Catherine Miller was the lucky forager who found two of this year's first King Boletes, Boletus edulis. The first photo shows a banana slug on the big bolete. Banana slugs love these porcini mushrooms!
Boletus edulis, also known as Cep or Porcini, are delicious, edible mushrooms. They are so fun to find. I hope I join the ranks of happy foragers very soon!
Thanks to Catherine for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
