I was wrong. I stopped to look at a dusting of yellow jellies, and discovered much more.
|Yellow and orange jellies. And three white dots.|
I wondered about the white dots, and went around the log, taking photos of dots; spots too small for my eyes to distinguish details. The camera sees better than I do. See:
|Bird's nest fungi!|
|I don't know what to call these. Cups full of rising dough?|
|Could this be one of the same species? And the hole where one broke off?|
Could these be related to the cannonball fungus, which grows its spores in a ball and expels the whole ball with force (up to 17 ft. away) when they're ripe?
|Yellow fingers. The largest is about 1/4 inch long.|
|A different kind of bird's nest fungi. With Cladonia lichen.|
It's raining again. Cats, dogs, and the occasional small fish. And I've discovered another prime mushroom site. Rain, rain, go away! Please!
More Tyee Spit mushrooms tomorrow.
