Humid weather following rain has brought forth a variety of fungi this week and, since it has been a while, I thought a couple of posts on these strange and varied lifeforms would not go astray.
These varieties pictured below are particularly fond of the litter at the base of pine trees, so it is no surprise that I saw them amongst pine bark chips today.
Looking quite decayed, these flies thought it a good place to reproduce.
This form has also appeared after the rains.
Seems that the weather is just right for fungi of many types.
