A rather large solid-looking fungi growing on a tree near the water resevoirs in the central part of this island. It was one of 4 or 5 all with the same shape and colour.

PS: Thanks to Marco for identifying this one.

Hi Murray.
Very attractive subject and impressive quality of the shot. Great POV and framing of the subject. I also like excellent wide DOF and perfect details of all pictured objects: amazing fungi, nice grass carpet, fine trunk. So creative idea and wonderful result. My best wishes.

Great composition Murray, I like this shot very much. Well done.


Hi Murray,

Nice pic. Most probably Your fungus is Gloeophyllum odoratum (Wulfen 1788) Imazeki 1943, which grows on dead pines and having odor of anise. Although I'm not sure if it lives in South-East Asia.

Best wishes from Hungary, László

Hi Murray,

Hi Murray
A nice top view of your fungi. They are such important fungi in the forest. The colours, composition and lighting are good and bring out the uniqueness of the fungi so well.

Hi Murray,

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the fungi. The subject is nicely frame. The picture is cleard and sharp. The light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Murray,

good photo showing Ganoderma resinaceum Boud 1889, without any doubt, very common and easy to identify for its shiny and smooth surface with violet-purple to brown colours, and without stalk.
