June 7th – Lichen, fungis or mushroom??

I shot these cool looking growths a couple of years ago and ran across them the other day. They’re pretty cool, I just wish I knew what they were called.

UPDATE: Word has it from a facebook friend that they’re called ‘Turkey Tail’ Polypore fungi. Thanks Helga!

  1. Whatever they are you caught them so well! Love ’em!!!!

  2. Really gorgeous, your composition is excellent as well.

  3. Thanks you two. They are very eye-catching. I don’t know why I just left them sitting for so many years. Although, I find that happens sometimes. You’ll be looking through your archives and discover some great things that maybe able to be tweeked a bit in photoshop or some that are great just the way they are.

  4. beautiful miracles! great shots Linda… HUGS Duane

  5. Very cool pics…nice!

  6. Thanks Duane and Andrea. The more I look at them, the more I’m liking them! One of these might be a candidates for enlargement!

  7. Take me there!

  8. I don’t think I can Lucky. I believe those trees have been logged. They were on someones property and last I heard, they logged it.

  9. Wow, Great shot. This must be what happens when the Miracle Grow Plant Food truck crashes in the forest.
