Fungi

The City Daily Photo theme for June is “The Beauty of Decay”. Click here to see contributions of participants around the world.

Decay of wood is mostly caused by fungi, unseen until the fruiting bodies emerge. The ones shown are quite likely the fruiting bodies of the honey mushroom Armillaria Novae Zealandiae but I am not very familiar with fungi. They grew on a fallen kanuka tree in the bush.

Armillaria Novae Zealandiae?
