Phoneography Challenge: Macro

fungus1

I discovered this fungus growing on a tree stump behind a bush in my garden.

It almost appears to have taken on the tree rings that are on the stump

Or maybe this isn’t a fungus at all, but a wood growth of some kind of the tree stump. I’m not brave enough to touch it for consistency.

Thanks to Lens and Pens by Sally for the weekly phoneography challenge.

      It was interesting to frame the different photos in different perspectives and compositions. It is too big a fungus to put the whole thing in macro, so it was a fun little challenge. Thanks, Otto.

  4. There’s a fungus amongus. 🙂 They’re truly weird and beautiful, aren’t they, and stumps seem to be a favorite growing spot. Lovely shots.

    There is even beauty to be found with the lowly fungus. Most of us walk past this or something very similar all of the time. Your excellent macro photos prove that there’s more to fungus than meets the eye.

  9. Amazing photo. It reminded me of an incredible TED talk I heard, by Paul Stamets, on mushrooms saving the world. I kid you not, it was fascinating. 🙂
