With all of the rain we've had around here, mushrooms and other fungus have begun to show up all over the forest.

This mushroom found an interesting spot to grow- out of a 1/8 inch woodpecker hole in a dead tree (a similar hold can be seen at the top left of the photo). At first I thought this was bracket fungus, but as I looked closer, I noticed a stem and the stem was coming out of a small hole in the tree.

Just think, a tiny spore blew up from the ground and landed right inside that tiny hole.
