I was lucky enough to see Violet Coral fungi for the first time at the weekend. This was in Liffey Forest, Tasmania

Growing out of mossy ground with dead leaves and twigs around, a purple mass of coral shaped arms stretch out. Each arm ends  in a split, as if the arms are all pointing in the same direction

Shroom in our yard. These always make me giggle. Wonder why.

A close-up photo of a white mushroom called shaggy mane growing amidst grass. It looks like an elongated, fuzzy egg. Photographed in late afternoon sun, the blades of grass surrounding the mushroom cast sharp shadows on it.

a photo of two fungi, a fresh new one and an old withered and shrivelled up one, Birch Brackets, growing from the trunk of a dead Silver Birch tree, beyond which is a tangle of brown bracken and green bramble leading to more silver birch.

@nature #SixOnSaturday Still lots of green but it's more fun to look at #AutumnColour ! There's more of it every day (especially with some frosts).
Plus: there are still #flowers for #pollinators lots of #mushrooms and the year-round #birds are in the yard more with chicks grown up (and kitty gone ☹️ )

Unsure of what species of mushroom I got a 3D model of here! It sort of looks like Hen of the Woods but not quite? #mushroomhunting #mushtodon #fungi #lidar #3dscanning (Can’t tag but this is a 3D scan of a fleshy beige/orange mushroom)

Fortunately the only random encounters in the woods were of the fungus kind.

Wondered what these are…could they be dead man’s fingers or dead moll’s fingers? Any #fungi experts?

Three parasol mushrooms stand proudly next to each other. The remains of an unlucky fourth lie against the third. In the background is a juneberry, blooming heather and some trees. This picture is taken in september 2014 on a late summer afternoon in Hilversum.

Hello autumn-friends! Today I walked passed what felt like one hundred pumpkins that were stacked in front of the local farmer's house. So yes, it's autumn 🍂
To commemorate the start of this fine season, I drew two people wearing clothes inspired by mushrooms for ya. Please enjoy the mushroom fashion. Also, I wish you a swell evening/day, depending on when you see this.

Mushroom-lamp "Siblings".

Two casts of real mushrooms on a small driftwood, but all cables/battery are hidden underneath though. I really enjoyed working on these two, they had such a warm glow.

I'm open for commissions, feel free to ask me about your dream mushroom.

The two mushrooms switched on. Surprise, it's a lamp! They glow very warm, like an autumn sunset.

For #FungiFriday I present these two #mushrooms I found growing at the edge of a mowed area by some bottomland hardwood forest. This was near #Sorrento #Louisiana on September 1, 2023. Neither iNaturalist nor I can identify them, but they are interesting nonetheless. #mushtodon #sporespondence

Two tan mushrooms with irregular caps erupt from leaf litter and grass in this photo. The larger of the two has an upturned cap with gills visible on the underside. The smaller of the two has a downturned cap.

White basket fungus, it pops up in lots of places around the city, in gardens and random bits of ground.

Such a interesting shape for something to take!

Found this today on a walk with friends. Just a little southwest (about 30km) of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. I have no clue what this is is appreciated.

#FungiFriday #Mushtodon + a cheat for #ThickTrunkTuesday
I see lots of #fungi on #trees living and dead here, and lots of #mushrooms on the ground or fallen wood, but I do not often see regular looking, stemmed mushrooms on standing trees! In fact I think I've only seen it once before, and it was quite near this one- in a stand of Populus balsamifera /Balsam Poplar, in moist/mesic mixed woods on the farm. I forget, for sure, but this may be a dead standing tree. @nature #BorealForest #Alberta

classic looking mushroom with a whitish stem and broad beigey-tan cap, growing right out of the trunk of a tree, about eye-level. The bark is grey and dark grey, very rough with deep vertical furrows. Behind are several more of the same kind of tree trunk some with orange lichens, and surrounded by green grass and smaller shrubs and trees including a small birch. Light is even and overcast.
Same mushroom and site as described in previous  photo's alt text, this is a much closer view, showing some texture on the mushroom and close up of the tree bark.
