Name: Carol Noel Hawaii (near Hilo) It's all about choices.
A friend of mine leaves huge fruit tree trunks near the bamboo in the shade...and the fungi get into the wood (called sporling or something like that) so when it is milled it is magnificently colored!!!
More great photos Tropic. I enjoy taking pictures of "fungi" here as well on my hikes but I've never taken out the time to do any research on them. I just enjoy viewing and being in nature as a whole;-)
