That’s interesting … like a scallop shell!
That’s what I thought, too!
Attractively shot Robert!
Thank you, Denzil!
Liz saw a scallop shell, but when I saw the bits of grass protruding from the top, I saw a butterfly.
Oh that’s cool, that hadn’t occurred to me. It’s always fun when people see different things.
What led you to separate this picture out from the other two in a post of its own?
Oh, I was going to pick one or the other, and just thought the heck with it, I’ll put them both up.
A fascinating captured. The fungus almost looks like a butterfly.
Thanks, Otto. A number of people have seen a butterfly, and that hadn’t popped in my head. I saw the Shell Oil company logo, which I’ve always liked.
A very interesting photo, Robert!
Thank you, Peter. There’s a different red one, cinnabar, that grows on oak trees, but doesn’t seem to get as big as the ones on hemlocks.
I wonder if any animals eat fungi. Birds? Foxes?
I’ve seen wild mushrooms and fungus that look like they’ve been nibbled on, I’ve read that squirrel will do that. Maybe that’s why they act so squirrelly sometimes.
Great shot, Robert! 🙂
A happy sight!!
