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.
