This is the underside of a huge dried up and flaking white fungus growing on an oak tree in Eastern Arkansas. It was taken January 2012. It is all one piece. Its quite old, having been there a while. I don’t know the name of it, its about 12 inches across. Straight from the camera, taken with a SanyoVPC-E2100.

I’ve had a camera in my hand since the old Swinger Camera days (remember those?). EVERYWHERE I go, my cameras go. My friends and family gave up trying to separate us a long time ago….But I’m relatively new to digital photography. I keep saying “Where have you been all my life…?” There are so many beautiful images on Red Bubble. I’m SO inspired!

    Great image, it looks like a piece of white cake, good enough to eat.

    do you have a top-view to help us with this one? Unfortunately…there’s a LOT of species of fungi that are white underneath like this one.
    Right now I want to put in a Trametes family….but not sure. Possibly Trametes versicolor……
