Orange shelf fungus

ISO 100, 100mm, f/9.0, 3.2 sec

Crystal and Karen had been really patient with me all morning as I looked for every opportunity to find just one more photo. I had used my allotted time plus some and it was time to get home to run the doggies.

We were driving down the twisty and dusty mountain road to home when Karen asked if I had seen that. Seriously, the road was wash boardy, there was a substantial drop off on the passenger side, pot holes appeared out of no where and I am still hoping to keep my new car new.

She said I had to stop and go back. As in reverse up the hill on a less than desirable mountain road. And I did.

When I finally found a place that I could safely park we walked back down the road. About 20 ft. off of the road growing on the side of a dead stump was the most amazing, brilliant orange patch of orange shelf fungus.

It was hidden so well, I’m surprised she saw it at all, but it was beautiful.
