Picture Florida sunshine. Today there is none. It’s another windy, grey day. Can you say spoiled? Yes, we’re spoiled rotten. We have been enjoying wonderfully warm days, plenty of sunshine but, alas, a front has decided to make an appearance bringing with it high winds and grey, blustery skies. Not great for any type of photography and I fear we’re stuck until the middle of next week which will give us the first opportunity for a trek to the woods and some much needed photography, with the promise of sunshine.
Today’s post is one from our last trip out to the woods where I found some “Turkey Tail Fungi” growing up the side of a tree. This fungi is so incredibly cool looking and is known to be used in Chinese medicine as a medicinal mushroom. It comes in all shapes and sizes. Some of it can be as big as a small saucer. It usually attaches itself to the down tree limbs and makes for interesting textural photography.
