In the Backyard

Around lunchtime I went out into the backyard with the dogs.  I always take my camera with me, and today got some photos of some neat fungus and slime mold on the woodpile behind the shed.  Keep in mind that the tiny mushrooms and slime mold “heads” in the photos are about the size of candy sprinkles (jimmies), and the stems are thinner than a strand of hair.  The “lentinellus” fungus is like a mushroom without a stipe (stem) and is soft like velvet.
