Orange Peel Cup Mushroom - Aleuria aurantia by 

These cup or disk mushrooms are, in my locale, more brown than orange, but I think this is an okay ID – correction are always welcomed, however:>). The picture was taken September 5, 2011, in Green Lane, PA, USA, in a hardwood forest. They seem to like growing among the debris on the forest floor and they favor a slight incline.

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.
