(7 photos, click to enlarge) –
Until this week, I had only seen one or two Mycena Interupta at a time and gotten pretty excited with every find. Imagine my joy at discovering this single log, covered with them at varying stages of growth and decay!
The worst thing was I only had an hour down in the valley before work and I’d already spent 40 minutes before I found this. So, a few very quick compositions and I literally had to run!
The best thing is I know exactly where to go next time 😀 It’s also very close to where the tiny red slime moulds I photographed last year were – but there’s no sign of those now.
I took these on Thursday and haven’t had a chance to return but aim to again soon. As it hasn’t rained since, I don’t expect they will last very long.
I hope you enjoyed the madness as much as I enjoyed finding it!
Thanks for visiting.
