A few years ago I featured some Bird’s Nest Fungus – a basidiomycete that looks a bit like a bird’s nest with eggs. Here are a few images with a different camera and macro ratio.
From crustose to fruticose, Cumberland Island is rich with lichens, many of which seemed to be forming fruiting bodies in abundance. Some of the round, egg-like lichens that dwell on the ground’s surface covered a light gap, similar to those I photographed at the Ogeechee Canal. While not pictured, there were also red lichens covering spots of Live Oak bark.
