The Old Man in the Woods

This is the underside of a tree that has fallen across a path in the woods. Though it is the crotch of a tree, from this angle it looks almost like the crotch of a tall man with a terrible skin ailment. Poor guy!

Oh, dear. He’s got several different kinds of skin ailments! I wish the color were just a little truer, though, because the tan fungus was actually pink.

I suppose if one must have a skin infection, it should at least be a pretty one.

I’m no doctor, but what seems to be happening here is that some of the fungus has reoriented itself to grow horizontally.

Last, but not least, on the old man’s back: fungus “flowers” blossoming in the snow.
