Hidden Mushroom World

It was a slow bird day at the swamp and I was looking for movement around the edges.

I didn’t see any moving creatures but did spot two groups of fungus that were in their own worlds in a crevice of a dead tree.

The next two images were taken with the Canon built in flash.

I didn’t have great footing and as I didn’t want to end up in the swamp I didn’t try to get the two groups together.

Here’s a wider shot of the tree where you can see the grouping from my first image; the second is a bit to the left. The tree had to have been magnificent in its day and is huge. I doubt I could put my arms around that limb. Sadly it has deteriorated noticeably in the five years I’ve been passing by.

Mushrooms Beneath the Pines

The large cap of this dark mushroom caught my eye as I crossed a large lawn under a stand of pine trees.

The cluster of smaller, overlapping mushrooms behind it was pretty interesting, too.

Taken from above, the cluster looked like buttons, although these don’t look like the button mushrooms sold at the grocery store.
