I love the interlocking cups and the wood grain patterns on these fungi.
Bonus moss, lichen, and leaf mold, along with the fungi here, to provide a whole panoply of parasitic growths.
My camera could not catch what a pretty vibrant shade of pink, on the bluer side, this fungus was. It seems to have trouble with the vibrant purples and purplish pinks--my favorite shades--or perhaps they're just more vibrant to my eyes and that's why they're favorites of mine--dunno. I can't get the color adjusted in iphoto to better capture it either.
It reminds me of a giant fluted clam shell.
