Back ground is so soft.

Your wonderful processing makes this a winner. Never has a mushroom looked so lovely.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Beth.
OH my! It looks all rubbery. Was it soft?
Ginnie Hart: It never occurred to me to touch it, Robin, but I'm sure it was!

Quelle finesse, on dirait un objet en verre.
Ginnie Hart: Now that you mention it, Martine, yes, it does!
Thats unusual, nice shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Frank. It was "new" to me!

Looks delicious!

Well actually I was exaggerating ..
Ginnie Hart: It does raise the question about what it's there for, Chris!

What a treatment! You are on Larry's mushroom page.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine...Larry and I are on the same page these days with all our mushrooms. It must be that time of the year!

This is a fabulous picture of that fungus, Ginnie. The treatment is wonderful. I have to say that the circumstances were ideal for fungi and you wonder what was out there in the dark wood we could not come...... and maybe we don't even want to know wink...
This looks alien....
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I don't think I've ever seen one like this before. We really hit the jackpot that day!
Ik denk aan judasoren (paddenstoelen)
Fijne week
Ginnie Hart: That's a new one for me, Marjolein: Judas ears. But I think you may be right! Bedankt.
Surprenant ce champignon gélatineux.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Definitely gelatinous, Pascale. smile Merci.

Very delicate looking Ginnie.

what was that movie called about some sort of outer space fungus that took over the world? lol... neat picture tho!!
Ginnie Hart: Don't know, Elaine. HA! But thanks.
That is a fine looking fungus Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Bill. It quite surprised me.
Belle prise de vue , ce champignon est bien tentant.
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if it's edible, Claudine???
This is wood ear (auricularia auricula-judae). It's an edible fungus smile Commonly used in Chinese cooking, I have got some dried ones at home. smile

We call this black wood ear in Chinese. Usually used in savoury cooking. There's another type, white wood ear (Tremella fuciformis), we use this to make dessert. Yes, black for savoury; white for sweet. smile
Ginnie Hart: WOW, LC. Thank you for all this good information. That's really helpful. So glad to know it's edible.
Beautifully composed. I love how the vignette draws my eye to those lovely mushrooms!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.
Beautifully presented, Ginnie. This fungus could very well pass as a flower with curly petals.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. If London Caller is correct, it's also edible!
A good looking Fungus, I posted a Fungus picture yesterday.
Ginnie Hart: This must be the time of the year for it, Brian...or else you, too, have had a lot of humidity/moisture lately!
These are wood ear mushrooms. Beautiful with the conversion.
Ginnie Hart: I just found this out from London Caller, Mary, so thank you!

it's beautiful, so long as it doesn't kill the tree
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sherri. It never occurred to me that it might kill the tree. I hope it's only parasitic and therefore a win-win for both.
you found a pink mushroom Ginnie... good treatment to this image....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It surprised me, Peter, as you can imagine! Thanks.

i confess i cannot identify it - some kind of fungi, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I've been told it is "Judas ears" and/or a wood ear, Ayush, and is edible. Beats me!
I know him, even if I have never met him, it is an elastic and gelatinous mushroom. Beautiful details of the shot.
Ginnie Hart: And supposedly you can even eat it, Claudio, though I'm not sure I would try! Thanks.
Lovely treatment of the fungus, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.

It almost looks like wax, Ginnie. What a interesting texture...not sure if I'd anna touch it though smile
Ginnie Hart: It does look like wax, and I didn't touch it either. Apparently you can even eat it???

What an interesting find in this fungus, which has a translucent appearance!!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Steven...and apparently it's even edible!
Who's been stealing my fungus? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! We HAVE been on the same page lately, Larry, haven't we! smile
