Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This old silver birch tree was in its last stages. I like the contrast between the tree and the blue sky.

Theese are Piptoporus betulinus - Not edible fungus.

Commonly known as the birch polypore, birch bracket, or razor strop, is one of the most common polyporous bracket fungi and, as the name suggests, grows almost exclusively on birch trees.
