Pink jellies

On the felled trunks beside the new beaver pond at Cougar Creek Park, we found this pink jelly fungus:

Popping through cracks in rotting alder.

They come in all shapes, from cups to tongues to buttons to blobs.

The tiny red dots in the wood at the top are more of the same.

This one is more fan-shaped; behind it is a tongue and a button.

I stepped over this rotting stick and missed the tiny candlesnuff fungus.  Good thing Laurie saw it.


  1. I'm so glad you told me the names of these beauties! I've seen them before, and didn't know what to call them!

    P.S. I see hearts!!!

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

  2. The pink jelly fungus is some strange looking stuff. I need to get out in the bush more often on my days off. - Margy

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
