Colours of Scotland - Autumn/Fall
Here is a variety of more unusual plants which have been photographed in September or October in Scotland.
Looking more like an orbiting space station than a mushroom, this example was spotted in the grounds of Jedburgh Abbey in the Scottish Borders in September.
This variety of toadstool is known as the "Fairy-ring" as it has a habit of growing in expanding circles. The damp, mild weather this Autumn has encouraged a large number of mushrooms and toadstools to grow this year.
Mighty oaks spring from acorns but this young sappling has a long way to go yet.
This large beechtree has lost all its leaves and stands out dramatically against the skyline. The rook's nest at the top of the tree will probably survive until next spring.
