These shots of different types of fungus were taken in the Loire and Dordogne regions during a recent holiday in France.
I’ve failed miserably to ID them using a rather ancient field guide to Mushrooms and Toadstools, but am fairly confident in thinking that two out of the three types of fungus shown above come under the “Bracket Fungus” category.
Top left was in the Dordogne region, in a woodland and growing on a fallen tree trunk.
Top right was by the River Indre, in the Loire region, invading the trunk of a riverside tree and creating interesting reflections in the water.
As for the lower close up of the large group, I have no idea what they are. They just looked interesting, all close together, nestled on the ground, in grass, between trees and not far from where our motorhome was pitched.
