      Cathy, I think it is a lichen because it looks like it’s growing out of a stump. But I haven’t ruled out a mushroom. It’s just a strange time of year for a mushroom.


  2. isn’t it something how FAST a mushroom can sprout? Love this shot!


  3. Wow. It’s really rather elegant.


  4. I am not an expert by any measure, but it looks like one of the oyster mushrooms, genus Pleurotus.
