🦋 That’s really cool!
Thank you! 🙂
Thanks, Grady! 🙂
Awesome haiku and photo 🙂
Thank you, Scifi! Give LM a hug 4 us! 🙂
Will do 😀
I’ve never seen anything like this! Thank you for sharing.
It’s different alright! That’s 4 sure! 🙂
Wonderful Tom on all counts!
Thanks, Belinda! I had to carefully step, in sections, around all of the poison ivy that was surrounding it. I am very sensitive and susceptible to poison ivy. It was like walking in a maze or puzzle! Bending down to photograph the fungi was even placing me way too near that green terror! 🙂
Amazing, I’ve never seen anything like it. Loved the haiku too
Thanks much, Paul! Read what was written to Belinda. 🙂
Intrepid, the risks of the keen photographer.
🙂 Sometimes the price we pay is irritatingly and ceaselessly itchy.
Fungi are amazing. Great photo!
Thank you, Eilene! Read what was written to Belinda. I am so sensitive to poison ivy that just being near it can make me break out! It hates us vegetarians! 🙂
both Haiku and image – extraordinary…as usual!
Many thanks! 🙂 Read what was written to Belinda.
Wow!! Very Interesting 🙂
Much appreciated, Leyla! 🙂 Please read what was written to Belinda.
I’ve never seen this type of fungus before. Beautiful! 🙂
It’s a real rarity, Kym! 🙂 Please read what was written to Belinda.
You’re a brave man to be near poison ivy, all for the sake of photographing a rare fungus. Hats off to ya! 😉
Kym, this year has been the best year for me not getting much of it! 🙂 I did get a small attack of the rash this year just from walking near some of it on our river bank (though not coming into contact with it).
Now that’s some awesome fungus to have among us!
Yes! Flaming fungus among us! Thanks, Sandy! Please read what was written to Belinda. 🙂
Your ‘flaming’ fungus and your mention of the poison ivy reminds me that one of the worst ideas in the world is burning poison ivy. The smoke can give sensitive people real problems — and even some of the ‘insensitive’ can suffer.
I am so very sensitive to it that just being around the green growing ivy can cause me to break out with it. It’s the plant kingdom’s revenge on a die-hard vegetarian! 🙂
I’ll add another WOW! to the comments here – especially the navigating poison ivy! Is that spider web remnants? Does the coloring of this attract insects and thus the spiders? Your image is so vivid – I want to reach out and touch.
Yes, Jazz, it’s spider webbing. I think it’s the solid shape that is attractive to spiders, giving them plenty of areas to attach webbing to, and not the color.
That is surreal looking – all that is missing is the smoke from those flames, though we are now getting that smoke from the forest fires out West in your state, and even in mine.
It is surreal looking! 🙂 True fungal flames!
That nation-wide blanketing smoke is sadder than sad. I had premonitions that stuff like this would be happening to our planet, because of man, and it is.
I’ve never seen anything like it – very unique. Your Haiku too. Yup, it is very sad and not only bad to have the West Coast suffer but all across the U.S. now – hope it is not still bothersome to Marla. It’s supposed to last a few more weeks.
very beautiful and unique, Thomas. Have a nice day, regards Mitza
You too, Mitza! 🙂 Stay perceptive and caring! 🙂
You put me right there into the connection of another. Yum!
