Image #54 – Violet mushrooms

Image #54The Asheville newspaper had a front page news story about the bumper year for mushrooms in North Carolina.  Lucky me!  And best of all I barely need to leave home. Photographing this lovely Violet-branched Coral mushroom did entail the effort of climbing the hill to my friends’ home and then getting down to the mushroom’s level, which is about 3/4 of an inch high. Check out the acorn in the right-hand corner and you can get an idea of scale.  So delicate and colorful. And so well named because it is very reminiscent of coral.  Just another joy of nature. ☙
