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.)
