Do you bring extra lens just in case you find mushrooms?

They were found in a small area, then none in other places to be found. Someone took a bite?

I thought that you would use your kit lens to photograph macro subjects such as
mushrooms. How can you even focus close enough with the 150-600mm? The
minimum focus of that beast must be about 7 meters. Why not get a set of
extension tubes. A tube will reposition your monster lens farther from the
camera's focal plane and let you focus closer. Active extension tubes have metal
conduits that will support autofocus. You just need to remember to remove the
tube before seeking birds, although for a close bird the tube might still work.
You just can't focus to infinity with an extension tube in place.

I didn't bring it with me. I found the mushrooms in Pine River provincial fishing area. Can't provide any more details than that.

Didn't bring what with you? Kit lens, or extension tubes?
All you can tell me or all you're going to tell me Pine River Provincial Fishing Area.
Wow, I like the sound of that. I'll have to look that up.
Thanks.

Kit lens. I do not have extension tube. When I carry my camera out, I let it rest on my waist, then secure it with my left arm, like you carry a baby. I do not carry an extra bag for lens.

And how long is an extension tube? I mean I'm five feet two, my camera with lens measures 48 cm with the hood, I already look quite intimidating as it is. True story, I had a six feet something guy put his hands up and saying I have a gun. He smells heavily of marijuana of course, but I am not entirely sure I should carry anything bigger.
