From a simple post about fungi - you know, those mushroomy looking things - this post grew like topsy! I realised how much I did not know. Like nearly everything.
Did you now that fungi are more related to animals than to plants? Did you know that the living world was divisible into Plants, Animals, Bacteria AND Fungi? Did you know that Lichen is a symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae? And, then again, that moss and mould are different from all the above.
Lamington National Park, in the MacPherson Ranges of SE Queensland has a massive variety of fungi, eg Coral, Rainbow, Bracket, Cup, Jelly, and probably more. Within each category there are specific names, like 'Dead Men's Fingers'. But I don't know many of them at all, at all.
In total, over the 8 days, I photographed 21 different types of fungi. The most were to be found along the Wishing Tree Track and the Python Rock Track. This post shows you a few of them. If you know either a botanic or a common name, I would love to hear from you.
Pst ... 'Dead Men's Fingers' is photograph 4.
