I forgot about this shot I took several months ago when I saw this interesting mushroom growing in the pot at the bottom of my money tree. I liked the way the natural light hit it ,so of coarse I took a photo. What do you think?

Seriously, a very nice shot and capture of the light.

These are very interesting mushrooms. You have a money tree though? What kind of money does it grow? And can you send seeds?

Vaiboy, Gerry, Steve & Tinosa

Thanks all for your comments, and Steve yes I can send you seeds but all you'll get is green leaves...the "Money Tree" is in name only, it's what the Chinese call it and it's supposed to bring good luck to your home. I'm still waiting for that cash to flow in...have'nt seen any yet.

As for the fungi, I have never seen this larger species either. But considering it's a Chinese plant, maybe it's a variety common to China whose spores came over with the plant. Nevertheless it sure is pretty.

Thanks for looking, Hiroshi

Very nice shot. I wonder what a close up of that mushroom would look like. I suspect you could get a few interesting perspectives of the spiral shape.
