Sulphur Tuft mushrooms


When you see a scene like this you tend to want to sit down and just watch quietly to see when the pixies and fairies arrive.
These are Sulphur Tuft mushrooms. They normally grow on dead hardwood trees and can be up to 70 millimetres in diameter. The stems are 50 - 200 x 2 - 10 millimetres and join to other stems at the base. These I also photographed at Sleepy Hollow.

  1. I really like the coloring & composition in the second photo. It's not quite sepia but not quite black-and-white either.

  2. Nicely done! There's a certain appeal in photographing mushrooms, not sure why though.

  3. That makes a lovely photograph Jonker. They always seem to grow out of anything available.
