Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)
I love this sort of detail, Lois. All fungus, lichen, moss has an irresistable attraction to me.
Ah the simplicity of Mother Nature!
Very artsy photo, Lois! Just don't eat the mushrooms, you never know ...
Interesting and beautiful. Isn't mother nature just so wonderful?
Indeed there is!
There's a metaphor here!
Interesting, isn't it? One thing dies and others are born. Provocative photo, Lois.Hope you have a wonderful week!
I like how those mushrooms look. Mother Nature has a plan for everything.
Thank you for your comment about your son and his ability with Corel Draw. I am happy that you visited Abe Lincoln Blogs and took a look at the pretty lady the artist painted with Corel Draw software. I thought it was quite good and I have tried it and know how hard it is to do anything like that. LOLThe fungus on the side of the tree is often called fairy tale but I don't know why. Unless it is the round part might resemble a dress or skirt. Anyway, I don't mess with them as I fear being poisoned by eating the wrong kind and I don't know one from the other.
They are beautiful! There is much to be said about beauty and nature, I often think they are but one and the same thing
Nature is just full of surprises! Very nice picture.Sunny :)
Great find, Lois! How many different species groing on that trunk!
Such is the circle of life. Beautiful picture, Lois.
xylophytes they are called - weird and beautiful.
They are pretty mushrooms!
Congratulations on the award Lois. You deserve it. Oh, and I wouldn't use any of that mushroom in your spaghetti sauce.
Those fungus thrive on dead matters. And they matter a lot to dead matters indeed! Nothing seems to escape your lens. :)
In our part of the world, we call these fungi conches. When they're big enough, artists carefully cut the conch from the dead wood, dry it, then draw pictures on the smooth white underside. It can then be put on its side so the artwork shows.Quite spectacular and beautiful!
Oh, by the way, did you know the fern growing on the stump next to the conch is called licorice fern? You can peel and eat the root--it tastes just like licorice. (Grin)
So many well deserved blog awards Lois! Trees do not really die like people, just as well really would not want to see too many corpses.
