Something interesting in the woods....


was found a few weeks ago.  A rather strange looking creature, it appeared to be trying to take flight.

Denise: Love the little fungus, it does look as if it wants to take flight. I guess it will just send out its spores.

That is a strange looking fungi of some kind... Since we are so dry here, there are no mushrooms around like there usually are.

Hugs,

I think this is a fungi and the colour is so attractive it must be poisonous. I wonder what it is called.
