Mushroom With A Mustache

I met a funny-looking mushroom in Cerok Tokun this morning: it grew a white mustache! I would want to know the reason on this extra-ordinary phenomenon.

"Every great man has a mustache." It answered with a broad grin.

That seemed not to be a good answer to me, so I poked and pried further, "Really?"

"Don't you think I am as sexy as Santa?"

I touched my smooth chin thinking of quoting someone greater. I gave up after a quick thought.

A daydream did make the mushroom feeling very high.

Hmmm... it looks like a white fur scarf too. It depends on the gender, I guess.

That is very weird. Never saw anything like that growing by a mushroom here. You do find the most interesting things Rain....and the photos are always so amazing.

If it is Christmas time, I'll think of Santa Claus. What a nice name, 'Moustache Mushrooms'!

Rainfield, funny post on the Santa mushroom. What a cool sighting and fantastic shots. I am going to have to pay more attention to mushroom when I see them.

I think it spotted the latest fashion, fur on the coat collar! Rainfield, very unique indeed, maybe you are the first to have discovered this moustached mushroom. Imagine that, a new discovery named after you, the founder!

I think you encountered an ancient elder mushroom, who could have answered all your questions about life, the hereafter, etc, had you but stayed and visited for awhile.

You found lingzhi, you are going to be rich. Now I know why you go trekking.
Did you read my old post about the wood fungus that a Chinaman got very rich in New Zealand from these fungus.
