Hi there - what a remarkable range of colours in the bracts. I assume the green must be algae of some sort.

It’s a great picture.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I've never seen one with such vibrant colors, that's cool!

Dimple said...

We have this fungus here, also. I recently found out it's called Turkey Tail (it does look like one!) and that, supposedly, it is useful medically. The ones around here get green like this after the wet season sets in. I think they're really pretty!
Nice shot!

Leovi said...

Nice image, yes, these fungi had seen but had never seen so many together, great shot.
