Laminated numbers

Hi Chris,

Doing the OU Neighbourhood Nature course and have decided to do my field study for fungi. New to all this and have been amazed at how similar different fungi can be. Thus became concerned that if I took loads of pic’s of different fungi from many different angles, I might mix them up and confuse any identification. However, I now remember that my clever camera allocates dates and sequential numbers to the shots. So no more laminated No.s.

Also thanks for ID help.
