Tree and Rock Fungus

P1000297

Quite by accident (or luck) I spotted this very interesting and somewhat colorful tree fungus growing outward like a shelf about six inches wide on the tree’s base. That set me off to look for other fungus, no matter the kind. But first I decided to get a close-up view of the above image.

Close in, the fungus looks like “snow” (to me anyway). Continuing along, I saw a large boulder in a neighbor’s yard, and on it I spotted some green fungus on top.

Looking close again gives a much different view of what was there. This is why getting in close to a subject can be very interesting, depending on the subject.

Once again, photography is all about having fun and always keeping your eyes open for interesting compositions.
