I discovered these odd and exotic shapes clinging to dead logs in the forest. Closer inspection revealed just how rhythmic their patterns and how colorful their petals are. They are fungi, nature's assistants in hastening the decay of the logs, and they have provided me with marvelous opportunies for both straightforward photography and photomontage. This will be an ongoing project, and I will post more images as they become available. Come back occasionally to see what’s new.
