Tremella mesenterica - Reddish Brown Brain Fungus by 

This is what I’ve always called a jelly mushroom – such a beautiful reddish brown color! These look rather like treacle:>) These grow on dead or almost dead branches in our woods (hardwood forest) in Green Lane, PA., USA. The picture was taken May 4, 2011.

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.
