Rainforest Fungi

My piccie of the day is a rainforest fungi that I took some time ago.
They are delicate bracket fungi growing straight out from the host tree's bark.

I did a bit of contorting to get my camera underneath so I could catch the light shining through from above.
Each was about the size of a 20c piece (like a 10p in England  or a bit bigger than a US quarter).

Terrific lighting for this pic. You're getting more professional all the time. I buy a dried fungus called "wood ears" for some Chinese recipes; they look rather like these.
