Night Life (On Woodland Fungi) Consider, on walk through woodland fair; Beneath your feet, another realm’s lair. Mat of twisted tendril, all out of sight. Yet, as fall of sun bringeth night; Up rise forms in sound so mute. Pleated golden bodies to spread its fruit.
Autumnal fungal emergences – A small cap and stem fungi hangs down from the underside of a fallen tree.
The Recyclers – A striking group of forest fungi on an old fallen tree trunk. Beautiful to see but please be cautious and don’t sample the fungi whilst you’re exploring the woods. For example, these might look like Woodtuft but I suspect they’re probably Funeral Bell (deadly poisonous).
