A real stairway to heaven : )
We saw some funghi on our walk today, but nothing as striking as these.
And welcome to Moblog - it's catching : )

I thought this would make a good pic. To tell the truth I find funghi a bit creepy but this afternoons foray has started to open my eyes to thier potential beauty.

Thanks for the nice welcome.

Oh these are nice :) I know what you mean about fungi being weird though - to think most of the year they're undergound or inside the wood or wherever, but you don't know they're there till all the mad stuff emerges. And that they're mostly made of the same stuff that insect exoskeletons are made of. Freaky and beautiful.

Thanks Dhamaka, I think it's the phone that does it.

Spiderbaby, it's the way that they are not really a plant and not quite an animal. Check out slime moulds they are the creepiest of the lot.

BS - you only have to look around to see that's not completely true..

Spiderbaby says:

I vaguely remember a biology practical on slime moulds. They live their own single-celled individual lives for so long and then they all group together to form a 'slug' that wanders off to do something else. Will definitely have to look them up again :)

we were badly needing a spaceman, so thank goodness you have arrived. Welcome.

I like your photos.

fungi always make me happy. I love spiderbaby's vision of creeping slime. could be happening right now in my kitchen.

Viv says:

great - if you tag it fungus, fungi, then it comes up in the more general search
