Black Corals


Some snails try to appreciate flowers like we do, while some mushrooms never look like mushrooms. They are named coral mushroom, though do not look exactly like a coral.

I have no knowledge about them days earlier. This is the fun of hiking, and is blogosphere. We meet each other, and call ourselves friends. The more I explore, the more surprises I get.


These black coral mushrooms “produce tubular, unbranched fruit bodies that typically grow in clusters” because they too need friends.

They stroll with upper bodies leaning forward and always have an eye on their steps.

They behave less like mushrooms.

Wszyscy potrzebują towarzystwa , nawet pokazane grzyby koralowe. Razem jest milej. :)
We all need companionship, even shown mushroom coral. Total is nicer. :)

Coral mushrooms, at the old corral! Nice job of rustling them up, Mr. Snail.

Love the black snail. Are the fungi a jury of its peers?

Hello Rainfield, stopping back to say thank you for linking up to my critter party! Enjoy your weekend!

The snail is such a deep burgundy color, I hope it likes flowers more than just to taste them. The little baby bird mouths are so irresistable, they make you want to shove some food in. The leaning marching coral mushrooms look like an army. Cute captions!

I'm not sure I would have guessed the coral mushrooms were mushrooms...if you hadn't said so.

I really like the snail. I haven't seen one in a long time.

You give so much personality to your mushrooms with your commentary and your photographic eye.

This beautiful black coral mushrooms I only know from pictures. Wonderful as you have photographed it but the snail above is a beautiful picture. Sleek, sharp and clear:-)

You have the most amazing places to hike! Those actually do look like coral in shape and size if not in color! Magical!
