I'm not far to have the same feeling as Howard here and was going to ask you about the responsable animal :-)! But OK, this is a fungi. Strange shape and color. It looks like those beautiful mushrooms degraded after the first frost. Fortunately your note is self-explanatory. So, this is a respectful one, well presented. You've managed well with the difficult light reflection on the cap. It's even and well exposed. Another strange one for our collection! Well done, Steve.

Very beautiful post and very informative note too, Steve. Maybe this might be the same specie you posted previously as "Gistening shelf" Ganoderma aplanatum or australe. They seem to be always wet. I am impressed with the 500 years old ganodermas, I did never hear of it, thanks.

Nice picture, I like the angle you used to take the picture. Love the colors and DOF.
I have been in the city with some data work, also, will be getting a new camera soon and hope to be able to share more of our similar nature.

They look like elevated cow pats! Great sh*t (substitute "i" or "o" for "*" :-)
I'm impressed by the textures and the slick appearance. Very well done.

Steve, my advice friend... see a doctor. :)
It's a very interesting and enlightening post. WOW! 500 years old. I think you did exceptionally well in getting the reflections and textures as perfect as possible. Great shot.

This is beautiful. It almost looks like a heap of fresh cow dung. Very well captured.
Thanks for posting
