Pleated Fan - Shelf or Bracket Fungus by 

This marvelous specimen grows on a stump placed in one of the tropical rooms of our local greenhouse/garden center, Ott’s. Ott’s is located in Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, USA, and the picture was taken October 5, 2012.

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.
