Shelf or bracket fungus (Polyporous squamosus)
A walk in the woods is almost always pure pleasure but this time of year it's WOW!
Ostrich ferns opening out
Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.
when the fern shot came up i said out loud, ooohhhh. stunning
The fungus is a standout.
Lovely images from your walk. I love the fungi and the pretty ferns. Have a great Sunday and new week ahead!
These are fantastic finds! I wish I could walk in the woods, but we are having a terrible time with snakes right now because of all the water.
I love this beautiful mushroom.
Oh Yes everything is greener than green and I love the first shotsso much.
Reminds me I had a huge dish of fiddleheads with a steak on the grill the other night. Satisfying.
Such beauty. Spring is so full of life.

i like the 'toasted marshmallow' in the top shot. and love the ferns. :)
Gorgeous photos! I love the patterns on the fungus.
Such an incredible variety and all so beautiful!! What a fun walk!! Thanks as always for sharing the beauty!! Your captures are superb as always!!! Hope your weekend is going well!!
Who would ever think that fungus could be so pretty.
Glorious and interesting photos!! The fern shot is just stunningly beautiful! I did not know this is called shelf fungus! There are some on trees in this area, but I never knew what it is called. Love learning this today! Can I tell you something? When a saw the little tiny thumbprint picture of your post on my sidebar, I thought it was a pie! If you squint your eyes, it does kind of look like one...
I like all, but boy, that fern is my favorite. Just something about it is so appealing to me.
Oh yes on the shelf fungi. It has a nice pattern to it unlike what I have here.
The chokeberry blossoms are quite pretty!
Those maple keys, I have always called them helicopters. Beautiful images!
Lovely fern that is. Spring has lots to offer. Nature has lots to display. We got a lot to appreciate.
Everything is such a soft green at this time of year!
It is true- spring is beautiful!
I did not know they were called shelf fungus. All are lovely photos.
The maple seeds are very thick on the ground this spring.
Great pictures, I do love the first one in particular..
I always love to see those ferns at this time of year.
This is a most wonderful time of the year.So much beauty and too often,so little time.
Nature is so lovely.
I thought the first one was a gourmet pizza, until I saw the caption - looks beautiful and delicious :)
Have a Great One!
Wonderful images from your walk. Pretty fungus and nice green!
Very nice serie :)
Lovely nature shots especially the fungus.
LOTS going on!
They are all wonderful but chockecherries? You have chokecherries? Oh my goodness, now I have a chokecherry craving!!!
I'd like to walk those woods with you. So much beauty.
You have captured the wonder and beauty of nature...
Beautiful captures... liked the way ferns fold in.
I think you probably enjoy walking in the woods more than the rest of us as you're so knowledgeable about the various forms of flora thereabouts. Beautiful photos!
Always lovely to welcome spring and see everything wake up after the winter. The photo of the ferm spiraling back into life is great.
Assorted wonders, great images!
That's the thing, isn't it? Such pops of colour and new life!!!!
I enjoyed your photos. I was intrigued by your calling maple seedpods keys so I googled them and found out that they are edible! I never knew that. I have many enormous maple trees that make bags and bags of seeds every year, but I think it would be an enormous job to try to harvest them, for one thing my big-leaf maples have small irritating prickly hairs on their seedpods. I got up on a ladder and bagged a lot one fall to prevent their falling all over some beds.
love all your walk pictures!
i especially am addicted to taking pictures of fungi...so many shapes, textures, colors!! that's an awesome shelf mushroom.
there's been one growing like crazy out back here...i've GOT to get a picture of it!!
Thank you for taking me along on this walk through lush beauty! I love that fern!
Beautiful series! I'm hoping for a bit of better weather to go walking each day again and see all nature's beauty.
We have large numbers of the bracket mushrooms here but they are all snow white and I love the patterns they form along the bark of the tree. Those ostrich ferns are spectacular!
Yes walking is a pleasure and so are your photos. I love the ferns and I never knew that the maple seeds are called keys... Great post... Michelle
You found some really interesting things to capture in your photos. Love the ferns!
