Turkey Tail Shelf Fungus - Trametes versicolor by 

Turkey Tail fungi, also called bracket or plate fungi, typically grow on dead or dying branches and trees. They are leathery in texture and can live for several years. Colors range widely and stripes make this pretty fungi look something like a turkey tail. What is visible to us on the outside of the wood is the fruiting body; most of the fungus lives inside.

This picture was taken December 8, 2008, in a loblolly pine forest located in Buxton, Outer Banks, North Carolina..

For a nice little write up go to:


I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
