This frilly fungi reminds me of a coral found in the ocean. I've never seen one of these before today. This one was found along the Falls Creek Falls trail North of my home in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Does anyone know its ID?

Wow, it does look like a coral in the ocean. Very nice color and sharpness. I'm sure someone can ID this. Well done.

Nice capture. If it were not for a few green leaves, I would belive it was coral. Beautiful color, and nice detail in yor composition. Sorry I cannot help with the ID, but it is an excellent shot!

Hi Julie, the genus is most likely Ramaria to get a species you would have to be very family with your local fungi or have access to a microscope and botanical descriptions. Over this part of the world they are not very common I have probably seen less then 10 in my life. But I do have an advantage, I have a microscope and descriptions and there fore always managed to name them except one which was undescribed.

Nice photo colours etc..

Hello Julie!

Beautiful shot. Details, colour, composition and DOF are perfect. I don't know the name of this particular one but I used to see the similar kinds back in Japan.
