Fungus Collage

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 November 2016 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

It looked like the the largest fungus specimen I had ever seen. I needed to provide this collage to show not only a shot of the entire growth, a close-up, and one from a distance to provide a sense of scale.

From top to bottom, it had to be approximately five feet tall and maybe two feet at its widest.

Photo captured October 18, 2016.

Isn't a fungus growing in Canada the largest know living thing on the planet? This is impressive nevertheless :)
