The never ending cycle of life continues with the rotting log providing a base and nutrients for the fungus and moss.

Studies like this can be all around us - if only we stop to look. Nice one.

Bracket fungus. Like a fleet of UFO's flying out of the wood

A fine image of these mushrooms. Nature's cycles have been going on for a long time and will continue to claim the things we build and think of as permanent.

I love mushrooms - they are so photogenic! These are shaped so prettily.

Incredible detail captured in these fungi!! I love how they create "shelves" as they spread out.

Very nice, Harry. When I try to shoot these they always come out boring. You made it interesting.

@Gary: Well, the secret is to take dozens of shots and to throw out all but the rare one that comes out nice.
