Wrinkled Peach Fungi

I've been lucky enough to find another specimen of Wrinkled Peach fungi in our local woods this year and to watch it slowly develop over the last week.

Here are a few images of it as it's developed, all taken with E-M1 II and 60mm macro:

Re: Wrinkled Peach Fungi

It is as pretty as a peach

Especially appreciate the last shot. I usually try and avoid the cobwebs but on that shot they add to it as do the dew drops.

Thanks Peter.

Like you, I like the strands of spiderweb however, I wasn't so pleased when, what I presumed to be, the manufacturer showed up as it was a False Widow and seemed a little agitated.

When you mention the dew drops, do you mean those on the web strands or the drops on the WP itself?

If it's those on the WP, they are produced by the mushroom itself and seem to range in colour as it ages, from blood red to clear.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment, it's appreciated.

Dave

Re: Wrinkled Peach Fungi

Yes, Rhodotus palmatus is a joy to find for the macro enthusiast. I have yet to see one this year but tomorrow we are searching in a wood which our group have not visited before.

Excellent images.

Thanks Harold.

I also think WP is a great macro subject, watching it change as it matures is interesting as well.

I found this specimen ten days ago and it's still thriving, I'll be interested to see how long it lasts.

Did you find any during your search?

Thanks, Dave.

No but I came across some superb species I had not seen before. I have just started working on the images.

Sorry Dave have been away a few days so i did not reply. Thank you for this information which I have now read more about as it is interesting. on the basis that 'a little knowledge is a dangerous thing' i will not repeat it, but I found the insight fascinating and something else to look out for in some fungi. There is so much more to nature than the obvious.

Many thanks and keep them coming.

Thanks Peter.

Like you, I have a little knowledge about fungi however, I'll keep trying to learn as they can be fascinating and make good macro subjects.

I couldn't resist having another visit with the WP yesterday, I'll post more images later.

Thanks for your interest and comments.

Dave
