Fungi V

I discovered this leaf trapped in a spider web on the back porch of the Bosque reception center yesterday afternoon. I couldn't focus in on the fungi at that location, so I moved the leaf over to my worktable. Click on the attached image to get a better view of a very dead leaf with very live fungi. I'm placing fungi in the "plant" label but there's some question about this classification. Some scientists advocate that fungi should be classified under the "animal" label. I'm glad that these decided to make a home on the leaf, not me!
