What an 'intricate' photo. Beautiful - not a word I often associate with a picture of fungi, but justified in this case.

This is so simple and beautiful. I would never have thought this was fungi, probably because that word doesn't have beautiful connotations.

Thanks for visiting us today!

A very delicate image. There are so many fascinating fungi this time of year. Great capture.

Good picture. 'Porcelain Fungi' is so much better a name than 'Slimy Beech Cap'.

Ooh, rather pretty!

I love how delicate fungi are, and yet so persistent!

Paul said...

Fantastical funghi!

I immediately thought of tiny fairies using them to shade themselves from the sun.
Thanks for visiting.

Gorgeous. I've not seen this one before. Hope you can get out into the woods again soon.

It does look as if it has been placed there by some passing artisan. Perfect and intricate!

I don't think we have these, but have not learned my fungi like I should. It makes for a nice photo, doesn't it?

Beautiful photo. ...and lovely new banner as well!

I actually have a porcelain, hand crafted, tiny, bowl-shaped piece that has fungi-like shapes inside it. It is a thing of beauty, and cost me just £2, in a 'junk' shop in Hastings. I have a feeling it would have started life at a far greater price, but to me, its beauty makes it priceless, anyway.

It is a beautiful picture. I found myself taking pictures of lichen and bark yesterday. Nowhere near as good as this picture though!
