baltimoresun Sun photographer Kim Hairston writes: The Natural History Society of Maryland had a recent meetup lead by biologist Nick Spero in Herring Run Park. They were searching for wild mushrooms, but with the warning not to eat any mushroom that you cannot identify. They found many like Pleurotus pulmonarius, also called oyster mushroom, Phellinus linteus, or black hoof mushroom, and Lenzites betulinus. I later returned on my own to see what visual treasures I could find hidden in the woods of Herring Run Park. See them all at darkroom.baltimoresun.com 5d

The ship, based out of Bergan, Norway, is used to train Royal Norwegian sailors. According to the ship’s website it was build in 1914 as a training ship for the German merchant marine. The ship was taken by England in World War I as a war prize and later sold to Norway in 1921. The ship has 22 sails that distribute over 2400 square yards of material. The Statsraad Lehmkul is Norway’s largest and oldest square rigged sailing ship. The ship is available for visits November 8th and 9th from 10am to 3pm. 2w

baltimoresun In the regular-season opener, it was an 80-yard completion from Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to A.J. Green that foiled what could have been a victory for the Ravens. On Sunday, it was a 53-yard pass from Dalton to Mohamed Sanu that led to the Ravens’ demise. The Ravens drop to second place in the AFC North after a 27-24 loss to the Bengals.
