Way back in October, I posted about a great walk I took through the Miami-Dade County Park of Castellow Hammock. It was great in no small part due to the proliferation of fungi I found. All kinds of mushrooms were waiting for me. I couldn’t show them all without making the post too long, so here are the rest. It only took me six weeks.
I left off with a shot of Dead Man’s Fingers fungus.
This is part of the grouping of Dead Man’s Fingers, but note the twig the fungus grew around. To me, this looks like a threatening fist holding a stick: “Get off my lawn, you damn kids!”
I welcome any suggestions as to identification. I’m not very good at that, and also am lazy.
I do however hold great affection for our under-appreciated fungi. They are just so beautiful. And the beer I’m drinking right now wouldn’t be possible without them!
