Fungi. Here's some.


Guess what? I don't know what these mushrooms are. Those green tubular things are just plain bizarre. Hadn't seen fungus like them before a few days ago. I'm not feeling quite up to par, so I'll leave it at that for now. My World

What beautiful shots. Fungi can be so mysterious and beautiful - you caught that so well!

Gaelyn said...

That's some wild looking fungis, especially the fingery ones. The second shot looks almost like an oyster shroom, which are quite tasty.

Great pictures of mushrooms, my favorites are the third and the drops of resin on the trunk. A greeting.

These fungi are fascinating in an eerie way. Many of us go by without noticing the life that grows beneath our feet and along crevices and walls. Thanks for sharing this interesting collection. :)
