Was it an ascomyctes? Was that the early spore gill starting to develop? Intriguing regardless!

I guess most of us never look at the undersides of fungi long enough to think of taking their pictures, but this is fascinating, like an abstract painting.

Glad to know that it is not my brain, or anyone elses ;) Fungi is such way too cool stuff. We had some dozen, or more varieties growing in one week on two acres and some were as large as dinner plates~

I liked to shoot both sides when I find these growths.That cute squirrel in my blog is the one who grabbed my hand when I held the peanuts out to it and bit me twice. That is why I named it Lucky.

It really does look like a brain... well, just a little bit. Usually the brain is more grey white though. Glad to hear it is a fungus among us.
