Very nice photos from everyone! I think I posted this plant before but today I didn't succeed with more pictures - rain!
Well, the fungi are not plants (despite many people think they are) but they are also part of the landscape?

ISv,
Nice ones.
The fungus seems to be something we make soup with.  I hope it's the same ones, they're usually sold dried.

Lion rock, I afraid you have never seen that fungus alive? What you probably use in soup should be Auricularia sp. (they are few useful/interchangeable that grow in the different parts of the world and some of them are cultivated by humans. All of them are shades of brown.). The one on the picture is Tremella fuciformis -also edible but never cultivated and definitely not as popular as the first one. And white!
You better don't start talking fungi with me because I will start posting tons of them - I switched to pure molecular biology recently (just ~15 years ago  :D, before that I was working mycology ;D!).

npdien,
Nice shots.
Like the background, too, colors and bokeh are beautiful.
The one with the dark background emphasizes the flower.

ISv,
Great series of shots you posted.  Like very much DSC_4584_DxO.jpg.

Grew up in the city, ate all sorts of Chinese mushrooms, dried of course.  Only in the last few years have I seen even a fresh shiitake!
For some reason, my appetite changed quite a bit in that I lost my taste for mushrooms, still eat them, just not much.  People love morel mushrooms, guard the locations of their growing area like family treasures, but I've never developed a taste for it.

I now see a lot of fungus, many colors, shape and sizes now that I live near the forest.  Awesome to know that they may have a network of mycelium that could be huge in size, underground.
