Look, Quick ...

Bird Mushroom Flickrsize

Did you see a white bird on the tree trunk at first glance? So did I!

It's yet another kind of mushroom, though, growing back in the woods behind the house. I think it's gorgeous. Here's a closeup:

I hope you guys like mushrooms as much as I do, because I don't think I'm ever going to get tired of them. The variety, the colors, the architectural quality ... I find them exquisite. Add to that their ephemeral nature and the fact that most of them are made of poison, and then you tell me what beats a 'shroom for an intriguing subject.

I absolutely love your mushroom shots! I have yet to see them so big on trees in my woods. Those are really cool looking...they do look like birds at first glance. I agree with you on how interesting they are...different shapes, colors, and sizes. I did a post on my blog not too long ago on my 'shrooms. Really great photos you have here!

That's amazing! It looks like a bird from all three angles! What a great find.

I want to have property with some woods on it. Unfortunately, I can't seem to make that jibe with also living within walking distance from work.

Hello and welcome to inmidreamz. Loved your sepia mask.

And YES, I saw birds as well. What a fascinating adaptation for living space. And the color! So pure and clean.

Nothing beats a 'shroom. I love to find them and I love to take pictures of them.

That does look like a white bird from a distance but then the second picture ... I thought ... 'that looks like the back view of an angel!'

Someone is looking out for you. Thanks for the friendship tag.

Walt's journal made it over ... I'll send you the link later today.

Hi Spooky, glad to hear you like them too. I'm not sure if I saw your post on 'shrooms, and didn't see it in your archives. Send me a link?

Sally, there's a lot to be said for being able to walk to work these days. Still, I hope you find your woods someday.

Greetings, Annie, and thanks! Hope to see you back again soon.

Kathy, you're right, it could be an angel. I think I like that image even better. I'm thrilled to hear that Walt's journal was saved! You'll have to tell me all about how that happened.
