|This was on an old tree stump.|
|And this was on the same tree, but I'm not sure if it's the same species or not.|
I think they look some alien life form which might crawl off across the landscape!
|Same tree again. The tree has been split, and there's a great hole that's got protective wire mesh across |
it, for safety reasons perhaps, or to stop people shoving rubbish in in it.
|I spotted this in the grass and leaves at the base of a hedge on the canal towpath. |
I think, it's a shaggy ink cap.
|No idea what this is - the top is all folded, and looks a bit like gills - very odd!|
|These were growing in the cleft of quite a big tree, and there were masses and masses of them.|
|And a close-up!|
|I assume this is some kind of bracket fungus, on a dead tree stump.|
|Same stump, but I think this a different kind of fungus - they look different at different stages of|
development, which adds to the problems of trying to identify them!
|And yet more fungi on the same stump - it was very big, but it was absolutely smothered in|
fungi, as well as mosses and lichens.
|These were growing all around the base - for such a small stump it supported an|
incredible amount of life!
