Almost frozen fungus

An unusual mushroom appeared in the neighborhood and, perhaps thanks to cold weather, managed to retain its bizarre features for a few days. Thursday I had a chance to explore it with a camera while the light was good. I came up with three interpretations.

The fragment of an oak leaf in the photo above will give you an idea of scale. The closer views below encompass a width of ~35-40cm (about an inch and a half). A Canon 100mm macro lens let me move into life-size range without extra attachments.

    1. Thank you, that was my aim with the last shot!

  2. These are wonderful! The last two work very well in both black and white and color.
