These were found in an area of the woods which is very thick with fallen trees mainly Silver birch which have been decimated by a disease over the last few years. An old Copper beach tree had been knocked down by a fallen birch and these were growing on its trunk , I’m pleased to say at chest hight .

nature, mushroom, fungi

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.
