Shelf Fungi

These are some shelf or bracket fungi. They are hard and leathery and grow on the sides of both dead and living trees. I love the variety of fungi there are in the forest. I especially like shelf fungi and mushrooms. They are very distinctive and have beautiful colors and forms. They are also part of the natural world that is mostly ignored. Looking for these small details in the forest is one of the most memorable part of being out in the natural world away from computers and freeways.
