A rather ordinary fungus, but I think the framing and the depth of field work pretty well.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

Fascinating formations . . there is a secrecy about them.

@Ronnie 2¢: A secrecy? Perhaps you think they are whispering in each other's ears?

It did indeed. Ordinary things can make extraordinary photos when some time and thought are put into it. Well done.
