Mushroom, Cerok Tokun

Do you still remember my previous post on mushrooms? These fungus were small and pretty. Intentionally or not, they were showing off themselves directly on the trekking path. They were as easily destroyed by our footsteps as they were found.

I have a new discovery at Cerok Tokun this morning in which the mushrooms were encountered this time off the trekking trail, behind the bushes. They were quite funny as though of the same type, I presumed, the mushrooms performed in different shapes on stage.

Those on the top which had their home on wood are what I have normally seen. The bottom solo presented itself in a cup shape, had its baby mushroom inside and stood up on the wet soil.

Anyhow, both types shared the same habit and like. They copied and pasted the woody texture onto their body.

Looks like I'd have some fun hunting mushrooms on your side of the world. Those are pretty cool and I haven't seen anything quite like them before.

Roentarre, Thanks. It is not easy to lacate this mushroom.

WiseAcre, I'll continue to open up my eyes on hunting mushrooms. Hopefully to share further my new discoveries in the near future. In fact, it is so excited to have found this charming beauty.

I like the one with the little one inside. I noticed it first, because of that. It looks a little bit like a seashell.

Ratty, it was a seashell once upon a time.

Rose Ragai, thanks. With a snail on the lids, it added imagination and value to the photo. It is rare to get the chances.
