Fungi at Greenbelt Lake

These pics are for dear [personal profile] spiralsheep, fungi aficionada. This assortment of fungi were attached to a couple of downed tree sections along the path. They swelled with color after a rain in early October. The first here make me think of pancakes.

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.

Curlicues!

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.
