They certainly caught my eye Brooke, I just couldn't walk by without capturing them.
Love the effect of all that fungi on the logs - it looks quite lacy and is so pretty :-)
I thought it looked like lace too Louise ;D
some serious fungi feasting on those logs, what a wonderful photo it makes
Thanks, I couldn't resist capturing them.It certainly does look real feast! I suppose with all of the wet weather we've been having it's hardly surprising they are in abundance. The rain is lashing down as I type... I honestly haven't seen this much rain since I was living in the tropics.But unfortunately we don't get the warmth to go with it!
The patterns on these logs formed by the fungi are mesmerising - beautiful #mysundayphoto
They are amazing aren't they... like lace.It just shows how much rain we've had!
That is so beautiful. xx
I'm glad you think so Melody because I thought so too.
The fungi is so pretty, a lovely contrast to the tree
I think the fact that the logs have lost so much of their bark and are shiny and smooth, adds to the contrast of the frilly fungi.
Beautiful. I recently photographed lichen on a log in a swamp near home.
Well we've had so much rain lately Laurie, that we nearly have a swamp now.
Such a fabulous fungi formation. Great find!
Thanks, I just caught sight of it out of the corner of my eye and obviously had to capture the image.
Oh wow, I wondered what on earth this was a photo of from the thumbnail. It looked a bit like chains. I agree with you, it's beautiful. Happy new year (sorry I'm a bit late) :) #MySundayPhoto
Hehe... I do like to add mystery and intrigue Tara,I'm glad that you like it. Don't worry about being late with me because I am a 'tail-end Charlie' So Happy New Year to you. I hope 2016 is a great year for you
What fabulous fungi Neesie, I don't think I've ever seen as many as that in one place x
I know I haven't Cathy and that's what caught my attention.It just shows how damp our weather has been over the last few months.I hope you've had a wonderful weekend and have a great week to come.
So very beautiful, Nessie. Great subject matter .. lovely shot. hugs, Donna
I thought it would be a little different for my Sunday Photo... I like to try to find something interesting or out of the norm for this link.Hugs back Donna
I love these fungi - did you know they have the wonderfully uninspiring name of "Many Zoned Bracket Fungus"!!!
I didn't know that and that's what I love about this Sunday link... you are guaranteed to see something you've never seen before or find out some interesting facts.Thanks for both the information and your visit.Have a great week.
Wow! That is impressive mushrooms growth! Can you eat these? Great shot!
I don't think I'd chance eating them, in fact I'm a bit of a wuss where wild mushrooms are concerned. I don't know enough about them, so I would leave them to experts.
Great photo, they feel slightly creepy Thank you for linking up
I think you'd be pretty safe with them... but I know what you mean.Thanks for the fun link once again.
Beautiful! Makes me want to make a lovely textural lacy collage! x Jo
They do look lacy don't they Jo,I've always liked mushrooms both to eat and draw, but I think these are the most unusual that I've ever seen.
Wow thats stunning. Who knew fungi could be so beautiful!
I know Tas... they surprised me too.
A fabulous photo of tree fungus Denise; there is a little here and there near the river here but not so pretty as this. Happy Sunday :D xx
I caught sight of the fungi on a walk through a place called Ness Botanical Gardens, whilst we visited with family for the Christmas holidays.I hope you've had a wonderful weekend and have a great week ahead.Maybe the rain might even stop if we're lucky!
Wonderful shot of fungus - love the colours #MySundayPhoto
Thank you Mary, I was pleased with the result. Have a great week
what a great find to photograph!
Well they sort of found me actually Cath, I just caught sight of them as I walked through a Botanical Garden.
Very cool texture. At first, I thought it was washing gushing thru drain pipes. After I enlarged the pics....lichen..lacy, frilly edged in white lichen!! How utterly beautiful. Isn't Mother Nature grand in this way! Thank you for sharing. And if I may, get your permission to use this in a piece of altered art (sometime in the future)? Hugs
Hehe... I'm so glad that you liked them Nan,Mother Nature always provides surprises... we just have to look out for them. I'm flattered that you want to use my photo and yes you most certainly can us it... on one condition that you let me see what you create! Deal?
Thanks Kim, I was pleased with the shot
Wow, that's a lot of mushrooms on a couple of logs. They look really frilly, like a flamenco dress.
Isn't it just Emma, I thought they looked frilly too but now you mention a flamenco dress... I think you're spot on there.
This is the coolest picture! The colors are cool and there is even a bit of texture to it, if that makes any sense. Hah. Great shot!
Thank you Leslie, I pleased with the photo and what you say makes perfect sense to me.
Great photo! So much texture. #MySundayPhoto
Thank you... I'm glad that you like it. I am pleased that it highlights the mushrooms so well.
What a gorgeous image! I love it!
I'm so happy to hear that you like the image Lisa,I thought the Sunday photo group would like to see it... so I'm happythat it appears to be a hit.
neesie what a fabulous shot. so very pretty. that fungus looks like- well i don't know what but amazing. oh yes someone said flamenco dress- yes indeed.
Hehe... yep I agree with the flamenco dress idea too Sherry,I just thought it looked so unusual that I'd have to share it with everyone. I'm glad you like it.
Fabulous Fungi shot
Thanks Margaret, I was pleased with it
Super cool photo! It almost looked metallic in the thumbnail. Loved it!
I'm so happy to hear that you like it Marie,I thought it was pretty cool when I first saw it.
It almost doesn't look real! Amazing ... your have such a great eye.Sandy xx
I certainly had to take a second look at them when I passed by Sandy,I'm not sure about my eye, because things just jump out at me shouting... "take me, take me..." so it would be rude not to.
Such a great find. Thanks for sharing with "Through my Lens"MersadMersad Donko Photography
