FUNGUS AMONG US



Even though we have flowering fruit trees right now in our yard,
I thought I would show you something else that has appeared on
the old dead wood.



There are fascinating lichen and fungus showing their colors.

Be sure to ENLARGE these to see the detail.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Mine is jammed pack, so it may be a while before I can check out
yours.

I thought exactly what Sandra said. That one on the bottom left looks like an Easter bonnet removed and laid at the waters edge. The rest look like lovely little flowers and foliage. Just beautiful, Sue.

I have tried capturing fungi and lichens but never achieved the success of your photos.

And your last photo has one species that looks like a woman's much beloved gardening hat. Loved it.
