Tiny Fungus

It seems that both Rurality and I were looking at and photographing fungi yesterday. I was just slow to get my photos posted.

This shelf fungus was growing on a dead Staghorn Sumac shrub (Rhus typhina).



Here's a view from underneath. I could not find this particular fungus in my Mushrooms of Ontario book.



I am wondering if winter will come back. It been days and days of above freezing temperatures, fog, rain, and sighs! I cannot ski on this!

Hey it was t-shirt weather here yesterday! Good grief.

I keep hoping for more snow too, although I think you have a better chance of it than we do. It was up to 60F degrees the other day. Breaking warm temp records. I think the fungus do enjoy this though!

I love the fungus picture. So colorful underneath! Those things are so amazing and there are so many different types.

I'm sure winter will come back...sometime!
