More Fungi photos - from Peter Donaldson

Spider in rolled leaf
(at top of web).

Note pool of water in web.
Peter Donaldson has sent me some of his wonderful photos from yesterday's tour of the Robertson Nature Reserve.

Fungi shots, plus this amazing spider-web shot, with a tiny pond of fluid trapped in the spider's web.
Sound unbelievable? Click on image to enlarge.

One of those photos you just wish you had taken yourself!

Jelly Fungus -
Maybe Tremella mesenterica

Juvenile fungus -
note thick stem

Possible Mycena type
A romantic photo - wonderful contrast between the moss on the tree trunks and the pure white fungus.

Another Mycena type?
Note the apparent fringing of the cap. It might be a trace of the veil structure from which this fungus has emerged.
