Season of mists and fungal fruitfulness
Autumn, which is upon us, is the time of year when many species of fungus produce their fruiting bodies. These can be toadstools, brackets or just a crusty covering, mainly on wood. They are the fungal equivalent of flowers, and if we can get over the dread of death and decay which surrounds fungi, many of them are impressive and even beautiful.
I'm not so hot at naming them but here is a group I found near the entrance to Filnore Woods.
