Little upside down bracket umbrellas

You will always find something interesting to photograph in a forest doesn't matter if it is a stream, waterfall or the smallest mushrooms and insects.  The big problem is trying to find out afterwards what it was that you photographed.  My The Wildlife of Southern Africa book normally has most of the answers... well, like I said, most of the answers.

These little bracket fungus are probably some kind of Funnel Woodcap, only problem is that they grow upside down.  So does it make them Umbrella Woodcap?


  1. I hate when I can't figure out which way I took a photo.

    I like the woodcaps, no matter which way they grow.

  2. Nope, that makes them a Confused Woodcap. ;)
