Thanks very much, Peter - they may be related - I love seeing fungi, though I know almost nothing about identifying them. These beckoned to me when I was visiting a friend's property a bit to the east of my home. They are much more frilly than your beautiful richly colored smooth and shiny mushrooms image. Hugs, dear friend (O:

Thanks, Nick - LOL - you're right - I can see the leg kicks, hear the music and shouts of frivolity (I was in Paris in '75 and saw the show!) - I do enjoy your imagination - always entertaining and colorful! Happy hugs, dear friend (O:

hullo there, dear Suz --!!

Firstly I must apologise for not spending very much time on Pano lately - and secondly for not visiting you for such a long time. Hope you are keeping well and that 2011 will be a year to remember with great happiness.

This is so beautiful - the fungi are so delicate and I just love the convolutions, and soft pastel colours on the sphagnum moss backdrop. As usual Nick has said it all - the Dance of the Fantail Fungi (with sugarplum fairy music in background) comes to mind! ((o;

Warmest wishes and a big hug,

Hazel - Way Down South-east

It's lovely to hear from you, dear Hazel - you've been missed, but you mustn't apologize because then I'll have to apologize - a regular round robin! Hope you and yours are well and recovered from the holidays. I am so glad you like these delicate growths - love your description, as always! Happy hugs, dear friend (O:

Thanks so much, River - each time I go out I see another variety. This one was new to me (O: ~ ~ Hi, Fred - the mild wet climate and fallen tree limbs seem ideal for an amazing variety of fungi. I don't know enough to eat them, but I love to see and photograph them. A number of people make good money collecting and selling them. Fine cuisine restaurants in larger towns than this one need and serve them. Happy trails (O: ~ ~ Many thanks, Floere - I appreciate your visit (O:

I´ve read that somewhere a while back that mushroom hunting is a big business your way. You might find it worth your pallet to learn just a few that are unmistakable. Makes the walk thru the forest a culinary delight and your trails happier!
