An autumn bloom…

Autumn is the time for fungi which I love, but it has been very dry here so the fungi are not as abundant as usual.  We did have some rain last week and so I searched through the pine plantation and did find a few.  This one was upside down, broken by some creature – I was drawn by the texture of the decaying gills and the numerous tiny bugs feasting away – the wonderful cycle of nature 🙂

  1. as always Lisa, you’ve caught an image that is passed by most as nothing but made it beautiful.

  2. Here is summer weather, it came suddenly after a long, wet and cold spring (and the calendar says spring still, I know).
    I love your abstract photo here!f

    1. Yes the seasons are odd here too – instead of sunny skies for autumn it has been windy, dry and overcast but at least now we’ve had some rain. Glad you liked it 🙂
