Miguel - Nice shot. I won't even comment on what it reminds me of.

With a little tweaking the 1st one could make a great aviator

I liked this one for the autumn background as much as anything.
Crisp image, nice work.

One from this weekend. With the colder weather coming on it'll be more challenging to find good photo ops.

ramseybuckeye - That's interesting seeing the fungus growing out of the fungus. I would agree about the river background. Nice and fitting.

I found this twig in some local woodland on the weekend. It was getting late and we were freezing our butts off, so I decided to bring it home with me - a rare thing for me, I usually leave things be.
I knew I wouldn't be able to take a good shot of it in the woods with the kit I had with me; I really wanted to get it set up on my table and make a good, sharp, well lit observation.
The twig was about 25mm (1 inch) in width, and the magnification ratio here is about 1:2. The little coral-like blobs are a few millimetres across.

Has anybody else seen or identified a fungus like this? I expect it's quite common, but it's unfamiliar to me.

Cool looking fungi, I haven't seen it in Ohio. That spongy texture looks like some mushrooms. Th white around the edges is interesting. Don't eat it!

Spongefingers - That is definitely a different looking fungus. The texture looks a lot like a Morel mushroom, but it's WAY TO small. The Great Morel Home Page

dave kitson - I'm no expert, but I think it's just a normal tree fungus, but it's an very nice capture with them all clumped together like that. I really like that shot.

Looks like Dryad's Saddle (Polyporus squamosus.) Common in the UK. Edible, apparently, but don't eat it please - just in case I'm wrong!
Nice find - it can be good to get a shot where both the top and undersides of some fungi can be seen.

A web domain devoted to a single mushroom! The internet truly has everything... but a Dryad's Saddle appreciation site? Some mushrooms hold more popular appeal than others - maybe there's a ranking site somewhere...

Some sulphur tufts I shot in 2008 for a competition I didn't win.

Spongefingers - Shame you didn't win. The shot has good potential. I think a little more DOF would have helped. Overall nicely done.

Bright colors amid the near-bleakness of approaching winter.

Miguel - I was thinking this thread was dying with the weather going the way it has around here. I like the colors of those mushrooms, and the angle you shot them at. They look like little bubbles.

Thank you.

I didn't expect to find much either, but I was able to shoot a few other colorful fungi that I'll be posting soon. All of these were nursed by a cut log which I assume provided some protection from the brief snow and serious cold we just endured. Of course serious cold here in Puget Sound is around 18-25 degrees F.

Now we're back to mid-to-low 40s. And rain.

SpecialK - Those are really strange looking ones. Are they half dead and shrivelled up, or is that the way they actually look? Cool looking regardless.
