Sunday Fungi: Fungal Art

I don’t claim to identify this fungus with utter confidence, but I’d hazard a guess at the Hairy Curtain Crust. No, I’m not kidding; that is its name. As with the other curtains and resupinate crusts, it becomes particularly visible in drenching wet weather. And we had plenty of that this autumn past.

Swollen squiggles… quite artistic: 1st Oct 2019

The photo above gives no idea of its size. So… this is how it looks as you pass it by…

Long shot… on a different log

    I like the abstract image at the top. As you say, beautiful event though it’s a bit odd and swollen looking ! You never cease to amaze me how many different fungi you find

    Thanks Crispina. It’s always interesting to see what kind of mushrooms you discover. You’re right. They do look acrylic. Hope you had a good day. 🙂

    How wonderfully weird! In the close-up shot, it looks like an alien invader from a horror movie.
