    Great find and fab shot, it looks like a frill. I like the little plant growing there too.

  • Thanks Di, I felt the green plant complimented the brown fungi and it was a pleasure to see two different forms of life growing from the dead tree .

    Definitely jelly fungi! Two possibilities (or more?) Tree ear or Brown Jelly….Tree ear I think is Aricularia aricula……grrr…I’m not at home so can’t spell to save my life.
    However you look at it though, it is considered a safe edible! :o)

  • Thanks for the information, the appearance of Jelly Fungi seems to vary so much. I prefer to leave it where I found it for others to see, rather than eat it.

    I adore that little green plant growing in with the jelly! Congratulations on your feature – FAVE:>)

  • Thanks, I too liked the contrast of these two creations of Mother Nature.
