Lemon meringue shark

And another fun guy:

Tree fungus

(This one looks to me like some kind of confectionery concoction.)

  5. I wonder if they’re sweating or dew covered. I’m beginning to think that mushrooms can take on just about any shape imaginable.

    • I’m not sure if that was dew or perhaps a short local rain. Either way there seemed to be a lot of water drops on them!

  6. The way the raindrops are sitting on the surface, it’s clear how smooth and “tight” it is. The shark image is so cute — looking at mushrooms in your world’s like looking at clouds. Most of the time, we only get fairy ring mushrooms in the lawns. It takes a trip to the woods to find some variety. As for the lemon meringue — if I could get my meringues to look that good, I’d be happy!

    • Yes, these are quite dense, and very plentiful in the deep canyon where the sun is only a casual visitor. The forest there is old growth too, which provides lots of dead trees for fungi sustenance.

  7. Mushrooms are fascinating “creatures.” Your photos make me think I can reach out and touch them. Wonderful.

    • They sure are. There are so many species and all shapes and sizes. These are quite large ones, about the size of dinner plates.

  8. Ha! Montucky, I love the way you look at all aspects of nature. These cracked me up. 😀

    • Well, I’m pretty sure that Mother Nature has a sense of humor.

  10. It sure does look like a shark but I bet it doesn’t taste like lemon meringue nor would you want to try it.

    • I don’t know if that one is edible or not, but I’d bet it wouldn’t taste like meringue!

  11. The first photo became my favourite … It looks like some kind of prehistoric creature … // Maria 🙂

    • It does look like a creature. The imagination dictates which one.

  12. Great finding and excellent selected photos. 🙂

  13. The title of your post takes the cake when it comes to a confectionary metaphor.
