Fascinating fungi..



Walking under the trees at Perry Lakes Reserve a few days ago I spotted the huge fungus 
high up in a eucalyptus tree. Fungi are fascinating.. and slightly gross at the same time :) I searched to see if I could find a name but the kingdom of fungi has a cast of millions. Has anyone seen anything like this? I love walking around the lakes and bush areas.. where there are trees the air smells so sweet and fresh 🌳 Hope you are having a good week, happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. I find their varieties in textures to be fascinating. Of course I'd have no idea which is safe versus unsafe, so I'd leave them alone entirely.

  2. One tree sayeth to the other tree,"there is a fungus amungus."
    It is really neat, but I haven't the foggiest idea what kind.

  3. The fungus is a pretty colour. It has a beautiful home there! What a great place for a wander.

  4. I've seen something similar before but I have no idea what it's called. It looks so exotic.

  5. Fungus is such an interesting species. So many varieties. I have always wanted to see the glowing Foxfire fungus, but haven't yet.

  12. Do not know what the fungi is, but it does make for a great photo. Good eye catching this one. Do not worry about sandworms, they don't exist on our planet. At least I do not think they do.

  13. I've seen big, folded fungus like this but creamy white and flatter, never yellow and spongy. This is really interesting.

  14. I like mushroom (fungi) but I'm leary of them. Don't want belly ache or worst dead.

  15. Again you made me laugh, Grace :-)
    "Gross" or rather "icky" came to my mind instantly.
    Indeed I´ve seen it here, too. On a dying tree. Probably thanks to said fungus! (I have no name, though)

  16. That fungus is a fair way up the tree ... golly did you climb the tree to get the shot.

  17. In a strange way that fungus looks really tasty but better not eating it. Just admire.
