These photos of this fungi do not do it justice. It really looked stunning.

Best in original view.

I always find it interesting that one end of a log will be covered in fungi while the other end... not so much. Interesting stuff!

I have no idea what this tree was Shirley. But it could well have been a silver birch as we do have quite a few in the wooded areas around where I live.

Thanks Thor. We have a lot of different types of fungi where I live. Along with rare plants etc. I am very lucky to live where I do. My only bug bear is that I have a longish way to go to the nearest river. Though we do have 3 small ponds they do not have an awful lot around other than the usual mallards etc. Mind you I like to see them too!!!!!

Yes Claudia, mostly on dead trees or tree stumps. Its a very striking fungi and can come in different colours, as a previous photo of mine shows.. http://www.fotothing.com/lizzieb/photo/483750795711f7e347896e62bb2c497a/

Peter, we are so lucky with our fungi around here. Sometimes when I go out to take photos I only look for fungi if I know there is lots around.
