Mushroom, Santa Claus and Dog

I saw this mushroom as Santa Claus yesterday. It was by then showing his standard stylish thick white beard. I could hear the low and slow ho ho ho while he was delivering gifts to the homes of the so called good children.

( It is ho ho ho instead of he he he because Santa Claus is a big fat old guy, he he he simply sounds like a little elf.)

At the end of a hard and harsh day, I am now seeing the mushroom as a dog sticking out its tongue for some quick and shallow breaths, for the sole reason that he needs to cool off the entire body. I am certainly carried away by this.

I think the mushroom looks more like Santa Claus than a dog, but either way they are great pictures.

I have never seen something like this before. This is one unique looking mushroom.

Looks like it's to late to get that dog a rabies shot. It's already foaming at the mouth.

Interesting shelf mushroom. I have a hard enough time identifying those around here let along something on the other side of the globe.

If you look at the underside you'll see pores in stead of gills.

Bengbeng: I love this one, awesome? much better!

George:Ho-ho-ho, you have it!

Mei Teng: I have not seen them until I go jungle trekking.

WiseAcre: You are suggesting me to lie down again. ok, no problem. I have no problem to be licked by the tongue.

Cher: ho-ho-ho mushroom, what a good idea.

VinillaSeven: Does it taste good?

kirigalpoththa: No no.. Filipino starts celebrating Christmas from September.

Ayie: Merry Christmas!!

Mother Goose: I would not fall into your trap. I would not response. I am much younger than you have suggested.

Icy BC said...

Great pictures and imagination! Love it..

Ratty said...

This mushroom is what Santa Claus would be if he was a dog. He would turn into a magical mushroom that grants wishes and turns all the rich kids into fungi.

Willie said...

I've not seen this type of mushroom yet.

AVCr8teur said...

Cool mushroom pictures! I don't see Santa Claus or a dog's tongue, but I do see a mushroom stuck deep down a well and the white part is the opening.

cherie said...

i have a terrible imagination, rainfield, so don't even ask me what i think the pictures look like, lol! enjoyed this post!!!

Bangchik and Kakdah said...

Or the brown is male and the white is female... just a thought.

rainfield61 said...

Icy BC: Thanks.!.

Ratty: Wow, it is too complicated for my simple brain. lol.

Willie: So you are seeing one now. Congratulation.

AVCr8teur: Yes, it is a good suggestion. Thank you.

cherie: You better don't tell, or you may scare me away.

Bangchik and Kakdah: Maybe I shall find out on my next trip. I shall try to have an ant's view to confirm its gender.

You are such an imaginative soul rainfield. I see more of a dog than Santa. Great shots.

Heather Dugan ("Footsteps") said...

The mushroom has growth rings like a tree? ~Looks like it does...

betchai said...

i'm lost for words rainfield, your mushroom pics are one of a kind.

Tes said...

so rare indeed! never seen one like it.

Harumi said...

Lol that was a good one! =D "ho ho ho" definitely suits the personality of Santa. =D

The mushroom sure looks like a Santa too, but the 2nd pic reminds me of a big brown python wearing a wily grin and a thick milky white necklace.. like Kaa from Jungle Book. =D

It's a great pic that inspires and triggers imagination. Cool capture Rain!

misstangguo: You are always welcome.

Poetic Shutterbug: Try to be imaginative is my hobby. lol.

Heather Dugan: Then it must the engagement ring. "Yes, I do!"

betchai: But you have written 13 words, plus 1 comma and 1 fullstop.

Tes: Hai, welcome back. This rare mushroom is a gift for you.

Harumi: Please do not mention you have a python as your neighbour.
