Spotted on a recent walk around the neighborhood. The side lighting and monochromatic colour caught my eye.
It looks surprisingly healthy considering it was buried under snow until recently.

This week my Flora and Fauna Friday post is the polypore mushroom Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor). Polypores are also known as bracket fungi.
When I photographed and captioned this specimen over 30 years ago the common English name was Many-zoned Polypore. That name seems to be less common than the name Turkey Tail nowadays.
My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) fungi. An alternative common English name is Fly Amanita.
The reason for fly in the common English name is because the fungi is traditionally used for catching flies.
The Fly Agaric is the classic red toadstool popular with illustrators of children’s books. This specimen was photographed on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England in the autumn.
