The asexual stage of Carbon Cushion fungus, which can be seen in the upper left of the photo.
This is the asexual stage. At maturity they are black.
Tiny stalked scarlet cup.
Red-eyed fly, wings out to the sides, with a black and white striped pattern on its upper body and a checker pattern on its lower body.
Flies with fuzzy yellow/orange legs on dung. There were many of these pretty flies on the dung in a dump area (so I don't know what kind of dung). Their wings were overlapped rather than out to the side like house flies'.
Orange butterfly with brown on half the lower wings, and amorphous brown spots and edges on the upper wings. Two sets of brown dots on upper wings. Undersides of wings are brown and mottled, with a dot or two on each section of the wings. This specimen was feeding on something on a dried pine log.
A slime mold. These are from .5 to 3 cm wide and tall.
Found on under bark on old log.
These burr-like things are about an inch across, and growing with some kind of reed or grass. There is also a spike with brown seeds growing with them. Found in lowland near a creek.
Four yellow petals with hairy buds. This invasive plant is being studied for its medicinal properties.
Abundant lavender and white flowers with wonderful fringed petals.
A tooth fungus, it looks like a clump of spines. The spines are moist and soft, and this fungus is edible when young. It's also called a Hedgehog or Pom Pom.
Orange Mycena usually grows on fallen beech or other hardwood logs.This cluster is still young; the stems will lengthen and caps will spread. Orange Mycena is one of the most noticeable and striking of the Spring fungi.
These violets aren't the usual dark purple, but are more lavender with a darker blue/purple center. I wonder if they're a different species than the usual purple violets?
Slim, tough fungi growing on wood. They start out white toward the top, then become black as they mature.
This is a male Duskywings.
