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 🙂

Very nice indeed!
Want some Indian summer?
No thanks – I’m glad for the change in season! Hope you’re enduring your heat 😄
You were drawn to the tiny bugs feasting? Hmmm. 🙂
Lol!! Yes but my job is to look at this level so I do get fascinated by it!!
as always Lisa, you’ve caught an image that is passed by most as nothing but made it beautiful.
Thank you Matty 😀
Thank you 😀
Striking picture, Lisa. Hahaha >>> we are having some warmer weather, but with the promise of arctic winds back for next weekend!!! A 😀
Thank you as always. Hope you’re enjoying your warmth while it lasts 🙂
Like the upside-down study; most folks don’t feature them from this perspective. I share your fondness for fungi.
Thank you fellow fungi friend!
absolutely fantastic folds of texture!! love it!
Thank you very much 🙂
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!
Hello and thank you! Weather everywhere is strange at the moment.
