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.
A basidiomycete (Nidulariaceae), the fruiting bodies of this saprotrophic fungus resembles eggs in a bird nest.
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.
