Splendid image of this bracket fungi, the wide array of lichen also in the image is wonderful as well. I see you were back in your beloved mountains not long ago. This must recharge your spirit each time. Great job Ram, thank you.

This is an unusual subject for you Ram.
A fine image of a Bracket Fungus that reminds me of our species in shape and colours and I guess that this one might be small enough to remind one of a baby shoe. If it were large it could also resemble an elephants foot, but that is less poetic!
Nice colours, lighting and composition on the lichen-covered poplar bark.
Thanks and all the best,
Tu te mets ŕ photographier les champignons?
Trčs belle couleurs et beau cadre avec les lichens en BG.

Unusual, but splendid photo of this Bracket Fungus. The light and colours are very special. Very beautiful. It looks like an elephants foot.

Thanks for this highly detailed close up of a bracket fungus Ram, not one of your usual topics but still, finely depicted in sharp focus and correct exposure. The rich cover of lichens on the bark is equally interesting my friend, excellent job indeed!

Hello Ram !
Must be great to own such a tree plantation, you are lucky, and I like this picture - one does not need to look for something very special, we can make beautiful photos with something very simple, like this fungus. I really like its shape, and you have presented it in a nice composition, with a funny title that made me smile. Very well done !

I have a few fungal shots in my own collection of potential postings, Ram, and I typically hold off on posting them -- quite candidly because I don't know enough to classify or describe them knowledgeably. You obviously do :)
Good clarity here and good presentation of form. A solid macro with a helpful note.

Its a little soft,but an interesting capture of this small Ganoderma.
It is not yet fully developed,but looks as though it could be Ganoderma applanatum.
Cheers & TFS

I don't know why I didn't comment this image 'til now, although I don't used to overlook a nice fungi shot. The specie reminds me to our (European) Fomes fomentarius and Fomitopsis pinicola, but there are differences, too. Technically a nice composition, maybe not as sharp as it could have been - but I know fungi aren't Your mainly photographed theme, or the shutter speed was long in the forest and You didn't use a tripod. I don't know. Otherwise a great shot.
Tfs, regards from Hungary, László
PS: it can't be Ganoderma aqpplanatum as Steve thought, that specie has white or at least whitish pores and Your specimen has reddish brown. Plus in most of the cases it isn't so thick.
