Symbiosis Or Saprophyte?


Growing over winter amongst the moss and lichen on the branch of a very old ornamental cherry tree these fungi tolerated rain, frost and snow. Since Spring has come they’ve disappeared completely and a wren is gathering up the moss for its nest. I wonder if these wonders of nature will reappear once Summer is through?

    1. They appeared in an odd place, the crook between branches, and the sun caught them just right early in the morning… I hope they reappear this autumn 🍄
