Love this, Chris!
Chris: I am obliged to you Maestro
an excellent composition Chris....petersmile
Chris: Much obliged to you Peter
Well the wood certainly looks inedible
Chris: The whole damn lot is in that category I suspect

The fungi might have a feel of security!
Chris: Or it has found something to love Philine
It's like they're hiding in the wings, Chris. Delightful.
Chris: Glad you like it Ginnie

I like this and would like to see it in colour also
Chris: The colour version is no longer available Lisl but I expect I could persuade W J Phillips (no relation) of Droitwich Spa to manufacture the effect. Or indeed, if you wish, to twiddle it into another dimension
Big toadstools and baby toadstools, this looks like a fence of sorts Tiff.
Chris: You are quite right Chad. The fence encompasses the country's oldest tree at Westonbirt Arboretum

Wonderful B&W and I love the small ' fruits do earth'. What was strange, last year in the north Georga Mountains, there were many fungi, now I spotted only one....... And it had rained a lot.
Chris: There's a whole world of these things out there Astrid

I expect some tree hugger would find a use for them; maybe developing some elixir of youth. What are the colours like in the arboretum? Perhaps next year I will actually get there!
Chris: The colours are good this year. I was due to go today but the weather has curtailed my plans
You would expect these mushrooms here as they grow on wood. Sometimes stumps are covered with them. Very pleasing picture.
Chris: Thank you kindly Mary
Living off the wood or the wood chips, Nature's own re cycling.
Chris: This is the way things happen in nature Martin
A little colony there Chris
Chris: The conditions must be just right for them Janet

This is wonderful Chris, what a find!
Chris: As you know yourself, nosing around always produces photo opportunities Anne
These look good, but still not eatable, in B.& W.
Chris: I wouldn't want to eat these Brian
looking good with the wooden chips, Chris
Chris: Thank you Ayush
They look like some kind of ink-cap, but I wouldn't be sure!
Chris: Maybe the same family Tom, I really don't know

Thank you for lifting the lid on your hidden talents again. An excellent picture.
Chris: I am obliged to you Louis
Very cool - I love the little mushrooms against the "big feet"...
