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 🙂

    Like the upside-down study; most folks don’t feature them from this perspective. I share your fondness for fungi.

    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

      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 🙂

    By the way, we’ve had a very soggy spring here in Virginia … plenty of mushrooms!
