Tree mushroom. At least that is what we called these as kids. There is actually two of these. The top one is older growth compared to the lower. I have heard these called fungi, but don't really know the proper term.

Roger, all I know about it is it grows on trees in the area. I guess it is alive as in the sense of say a mushroom or the tree itself. In this case, I would call it a parasite, much like moss in the oak, and cypress trees.

Nice shot of it Jerry, that older one is really interesting. I have one (I think it is the same kind) that has been used as a canvas and a Christmas scene was painted on it.

Thanks Jim and Ted for the nice comments. This one was taken with the FZ30 at about the same distance, I just thought the one from the FX01 was better because of the low light condition.

Bizarre looking. I normally call them mushrooms but then decided to call them fungi.. lol...it don't think it matters but I think fungi is a more general term of which mushroom is a sub set within. :?:?


I think I like the one from the FZ30 better as the white in the first one seems a bit strong...maybe it is a monitor thing. ....hm...

Nice picture Jerry. I like the FZ30 shot better myself. It has a lot more detail on the white one. We don't have enough humidity here in Abilene for those to grow.

Thanks, Beth, Don and Donna. The FX01 shot was straight out of the camera, just imported into PE4, but no PP. The FZ30 shot was just auto level adjustment.
