Tuesday morning, I spent a couple hours hiking at Peace Valley Park near Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The wildflowers weren't blooming there yet though I saw and heard lots of birds singing. But in my hiking, I came across some fungi growing on a live tree. I'm fascinated by fungi. So I took pictures of fungae from a number of trees. However the ones pictured below all came from the same tree. As you view the pictures be sure to click on them to get the larger view.
The first picture shows the whole stretch of fungi growing on the tree.
This next picture shows close up the two fungi near the bottom the of the first picture.
This picture shows the underside of the fungi on the top third or so of the first picture.
Sometimes, I think I ought to have been an earth scientist or a naturalist.
