Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

 Texture of white fungus

Nature is all about texture and my photo is a good example. Although there are plenty more similar examples to be found none will be exactly like this one that I spotted in the bush near the country house in the Eastern Townships.

I was doing something I try to do whenever I am out in the country, taking nice long walks to see what I can find to photograph when I got lucky and saw this white fungus growing on a rotten log. As you can see the bark has come apart in irregular sections leaving bare darkened wood meanwhile, the remaing bark has been overgrown with the white fungus creating an interesting texture. My “log” rests nestled amongst small dead broken twigs and mostly dead brown leaves complimented with some fresh green new ones.
