The fungi like a flower. Nice shot.

Cheers, Jeff

Interesting Fungi but fantastic tree bark and colours, plus that little tractor tucked away makes a lovely scene and a Golden Star from me ~ Enjoy your Sunday dearest May ~ Ciao nick

....wenn Bäume reden könnten. Eine gelungene Aufnahme May! Dass unten im Tal noch ein Traktor auftaucht gibt dieser Szene etwas spezielles.

Grüße, Manfred

Was für ein schöner, großer Baumpilz, liebe May! Tolles Foto, und auch der Hintergrund mit dem Traktor, der um die Ecke kommt, gefällt mir sehr! Liebe Grüße, Anne

Eagle, Jeff, Nick, Nadia, Zaman, thank you very much! I enjoy your lovely comments! Special thanks for the golden star, Nick! As nice as they may look, those fungis are gradually eating up the tree from the inside. That's how life goes, a continuous circle of ending and beginning lives. Warm regards, May

Bea, Manfred, Holger, Anne, herzlichen Dank für all Eure Kommentare. So lustig diese Schwämme aussehen, so verderblich sind sie für ihren Wirt, den Baum; aber das gehört zum steten Kreislauf des Lebens. Liebe Grüsse, May

Très bel arbre, ancien recouvert de mousse et de champignons.

Merci May

Cher Domi, merci beaucoup pour ta visite! En amitiés, May

Dear Tonia, thank you very much! Very best regards, May

I like the subject and your skill in the use of the diafragm to achieve the faded background... :)

Margrit M. Berger (S… on October 21, 2009

Dear Edmundo, thanks for visiting! But I really have no idea what you mean by this word??? Best regards, May

Edmundo Rodríguez Pr… on October 21, 2009

I suppose you´re talking about "diafragm", is the dispositive that open and close lens opening... ;) Un abrazo, Edmundo

Margrit M. Berger (S… on October 21, 2009

Edmundo, I don't know the word in this sense. But I understand what you mean now, thank you! Saludos, May

lovely shot dear May :) but beware! don't park under this tree anymore :) with a growth like this it's bound to break in a year or two... LG, Peter

Margrit M. Berger (S… on October 23, 2009

Dear Peter, thank you very much! Don't worry, I'll take care in a year or two! :)) Besides I often wonder, how long it takes, till a tree falls down. I have seen many of them still standing like this one. My very best regards, May

A hollow cylinder is quite a sturdy structure... but the limbs are vulnerable to breaking off in a windstorm or with a heavy wet snow once their center goes soft. I like the velvet green moss on the limb - a whole garden living there!

Swissmay B&W on December 21, 2009

Chris, so true! Thank you for your very welcome comments! We've had a lot of heavy snow those days and I have seen broken down branches today!

I love those little "biospheres" too, which very often aren't even noticed.

Warm wishes, May
