Fungi, Continued

Interesting the white filament material on the larger fungus. It reminds me of shredded coconut, like that used on cake icing. Could I offer you a slice? Also note the drip tip leaf between the two fungi. Quite common in the tropical regions, where there's a lot of rain. It's theorized that such engineering allows for fast runoff of water, thus better conserving nutrients in the leaf structure.

We have some mushrooms that look like that here, too. I think I'll pass on the mushroom cake though. ;-)
