Shelter

From a few steps away, it's just another old, cracked log a few steps from the shore. The wind scours the log with sand; sun and rain alternately scorch and soak the greying wood. But down in those cracks, the living is good.

Delicate mushrooms, assorted lichens and slimes.

A narrower crack anchors the bases of Rusty-gilled polypores, Gloeophyllum sepiarium.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

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!
