Something orange grows in the woods…

It must’ve been fungi season the day we visited one of our local parks back in September because they were everywhere along this one path  into the woods.  But this one here on a fallen tree caught my eye in a big way.  First of all, in all of the green and brown that was everywhere else, this orange stood out and begged to be photographed.  I wish I had taken my macro lens with me this day but I got as close as I could with my 50mm Sigma A lens (without rolling down the hill like Jack and Jill) to get this image.

I’ve done a tight crop on the image so that you could see the fungi better.  Are these a form of bracket fungus too?

    It might sound a little weird, but the fungus is actually nice to look at! Beautiful photo!

    Glad you didn’t roll down the hill! Love this… as it shows us how the most uncommon can sometimes be the best.

  3. Very nice. This would make a great color study.

    Those fungi are beautiful, Teri. It’s always a special treat to discover one — especially that colorful — when out taking a stroll.
