Hiking yesterday led me to discover some wonderful Oyster mushrooms! Woooowhooo! First mushrooms in MONTHS!
I will be posting more of one particular cluster but this is a major close-up of the structure of the gills. The more I looked at them the more I got drawn into their complex and other-worldly beauty.
A flick of color…a bit of stretch…and a heightened contrast and this was then ‘end’ result (so far).
