Bunchberry and Fungi - Fairbanks - August 2015
When I was out taking photos of the woods behind my house i noticed these two examples of fungi ensconced among the bunchberries(Cornus canadensis) . These two fungi were within yards of each other.
A large mushroom overshadowing the buncberries beneath.
A lichen (I assume its a lichen) engulfing a bunchberry plant. (Yes, lichens are a fungi, at least in part. They are composite organisms with algae or cyanobacteria (sometimes both) and fungi living together symbiotically.)
